Dolphins make a change at fullback


The Dolphins had one former member of the Bears on their roster at fullback when Sunday started and they had one when the day ended, but it wasn’t the same fullback.

Miami claimed Tyler Clutts off of waivers and cut Evan Rodriguez, leaving them with one fullback on their 53-man roster heading into the start of the regular season. The team cut Jorvorskie Lane last week.

Clutts made his NFL debut with the Bears in 2011 and played all 16 games with the team that year. He was traded to Houston at the end of the 2012 preseason and played all 16 games for them last year, but didn’t make the team out of training camp this year. He caught eight passes for 48 yards for the Bears, but has never carried the ball in a regular season game.

Clutts also saw a lot of special teams work in his previous two stops, something that should be a big part of his portfolio in Miami as well.

    I’m sure he’s a gifted athlete, but he sounds like a Clutts.

    With a name like Klutz he should be a Cowboy.

    He is an upgrade at his position, his name should not be mock. Bill
