After bouncing around pro football the past three years, former Fresno State and Clovis High star Tyler Clutts has an NFL home for the next three seasons.
The Chicago Bears announced today they signed the fullback to a three-year contract off the Cleveland Browns practice squad.
The move came a day after the Bears released fullback Will Ta’ufo’ou.
Clutts played in three preseason games for the Browns this year, running once for 3 yards and catching two passes for 13.
Never miss a local story.
The 6-foot-2, 260-pounder entered the NFL last season with the Browns after playing for Sacramento of the United Football League in 2010, Utah of the Arena Football League in 2010 and for Edmonton of the Canadian Football League in 2008 and 2009.
At Fresno State from 2004 to 2007, he played defensive end and recorded 23.5 career sacks.
He was The Bee's high school football Player of the Year in December 2002 after quarterbacking Clovis to the Yosemite Division Large School championship.
