Clutts played all 4 games in the PS.
He ran the ball twice for 6 yards (3 yard each time).
He also caught 4 passes for 32 yards.

Edit: Those numbers were in the 2011 PS

He also played for game during PS 2012, recorded no rushing attempts and had 3 catches for 14 yards.

Default Re: McManis traded to Bears

We had a surplus of young CBs and a need for a FB.

I had thought Norris's blocking last night was going to be good enough to get him on the team but I wuz worng. It couldn't counteract those two horrible dropped passes.

I like the trade. Hope this kid works out.

Here's some insight from Bears Fans.

Sounds like we may have snagged another good FB from the NFC North.

Apparently, they are basing their opinion of his running ability on the fact that he is never asked to do it (Which might be competely correct).

In his NFL career, he has two carries. Both occurred in preseason. Preseason of 2011 when he was on the Browns roster.

No carries in 2011 regular season, no carries in 2012 preseason.

McManis has to be happy since he played at Northwestern (northside Chicago).

Good move, hate to see Norris go...but whatever makes a W I'm all for it.

Cause he couldn't catch and he wasn't that great of a blocker.

I saw that. Maybe they give him some practice and see if they are comfortable with him. If they are maybe when we need to pick someone up during the year he can take over the long-snapping and save a roster spot.

Default Re: McManis traded to Bears

Clutts reminds me of Owen Marecic, Stanford who was drafted by Cleveland in the 4th round out of Stanford. Interestingly I believe Tyler was first signed by the Browns after a stint in other professional football leagues. Both players have experience on both sides of the ball. Both players are physical & play 110% all out. Lead blocker upgrade, better hands, quality special teams player & could get some reps @ LB if Texans get in a pinch.

In regards to Sherrick, I thought he was ahead of both Nolan & Shiloh Keo.

unrelated, but I hope hope Texans keep Eddie Pleasent, kid has excellent closing speed, instincts & is just a very solid football player.

nice exchange. Texans need to try and find their swing Tackle for the year. Might have dangled McManis for that....

Who uses fullbacks to actually run the ball anyway? Not very many teams.

From these extensive samples of 2010 UFL highlights, he doesn't seem to have any problems with catching passes.....or even running the ball.
