Dexter McCluster let the Kansas City Chiefs know on Monday afternoon that he was unlikely to stay with the team once the NFL free agency period kicked off at 4 p.m. ET today, and he is already beginning to generate some interest on the open market.
McCluster is expected to find a new home on Tuesday evening, and it appears that the San Francisco 49ers could be one of the potential suitors.
According to Bill Williamson from ESPN, the 49ers are a team to watch when it comes to adding the speedster.
#49ers One name to keep an eye on if price is right and team goes outside is #Chiefs WR/returner Dexter McCluster. Could be some interest.

Not only would McCluster be able to add even more speed to the 49ers offense on the edge, but also he is a valuable player on special teams and could fill the void in the return game that was left when the 49ers released Kyle Williams -- who interestingly enough signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.A.J.
