Bears sign FB Clutts

September, 7, 2011
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears signed fullback Tyler Clutts off the Cleveland Browns' practice squad.

The Bears had an opening at the fullback position on their 53-man roster after they released Will Ta'ufo'ou on Tuesday.

An undrafted rookie out of Fresno State in 2008, Clutts spent time in the CFL, AFL and UFL before signing a futures contract with Cleveland in January.

He played for the UFL Sacramento Mountain Lions in 2008.

Former Bears fullback Eddie Williams is expected to replace Clutts on the Browns practice squad pending a physical.
