KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Dexter McCluster figures he watched his shake-and-baking punt return about 500 times last weekend, a dynamic touchdown run that helped his Kansas City Chiefs beat the New York Giants.
Don’t think for a second that he was exaggerating, either.
It was the kind of dynamic return that the Chiefs have been hoping to get out of McCluster, their former second-round draft pick who has struggled to find his niche in the NFL.
McCluster believes that he’s starting to get on track under new coach Andy Reid, though, and besides: The Chiefs are off to a 4-0 start. As McCluster points out, that’s what really matters.
