Chiefs WR Donnie Avery is a likely starter along with Dwayne Bowe. Reid said recently that Dexter McCluster would also play.
“I like McCluster,” Reid said. “I think he’s a good football player, and he has a role on this football team. I’ve got some things in mind for him.”
McCluster, who is quick, could flourish in Reid’s offense. But he’s not particularly fast, which again pointed to the need for Avery.
Avery was a second-round pick of the Rams in 2008 and played two seasons in St. Louis before tearing his ACL in a preseason game in 2010. He missed that season and was cut by the Rams before the following season.
If he's the starter, Avery will be a sleeper heading into the 2013 season. His value will depend on how quickly Reid can turn around the Chiefs' offense.
