If any Titans player can offer a good scouting report of running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster, it's probably fellow free-agent signee Shaun Phillips.

That's because the veteran linebacker spent part of the past four seasons – three in San Diego and one in Denver – trying to tackle McCluster, who played for the AFC West rival Chiefs during that stretch.

"He made our game-plan board every time we ever played against him, for any team I played for," Phillips said. "We had an alert when he was on the field. … Every time. If he was on the field, we were expecting him to get the ball.

"He's a hell of a player. He's dynamic with the football in his hands. I'm excited to see our offense get to work with someone like that."
