The Texans made a trade in advance of the cut-deadline, sending cornerback Sherrick McManis to the Bears for fullback Tyler Clutts, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

They’re keeping James Casey as their starter, but made the deal for the former CFL and Arena Leaguer.

McClain also reports they released veteran fullback Moran Norris to make room for the newcomer on the roster.

    Likely a salary cap move by Texans, saves $500K vs keeping Moran Norris.

    I’m a Bears fan, and can tell you that Clutts is a very solid fullback. Sorry to see him go… I’m not familiar with McManis, is he a solid pickup for us as well? I would hope the value would be the same.

    That looks like a big man. I would not want to be between him and the end zone.

    I went to high school with Clutts. Dudes a monster, played QB in high school. Gym rat…Houston should be glad to have him.

    McManis has a lot of ability. He showed he’s willing to get in there on the run, also. Not afraid to make the big hit, great cover ability. I thought he was definitely a piece of the puzzle here in Houston. I wish him all the luck.

    Glad to hear that Clutts is a solid FB. Have never heard of him but, if Kubiak wanted him, then he should be a great addition to the Texans as there have been nothing but solid player moves on both sides of the ball.

    Clutts is a beast so here’s hoping we didn’t get ripped off. Nice to see we didn’t settle for a 7th round pick in the year 3000!

    In Kub’s offence the FB must be able to catch the ball(something Norris didn’t do) James Casey might have the best hands on the team.I think Clutts will be a good goal line and short yardage back.Don’t be surprised if he get’s his first NFL TD by week three.

    Looks like a good deal for both teams…Houston is getting a good player in Clutts, I am sorry to see him go…No FB need in Tice’s offense, or I am sure the Bears would have kept him.
