The Bears traded FB Tyler Clutts to the Teans for CB Sherrick McManis, PFW correspondent John McClain of the Houston Chronicle first reported.
Clutts played in every game last season for the Bears with eight starts. He had eight catches for 48 yards.
McManis, a third-year pro, played in nine games for Houston last season and made five tackles. The Northwestern product has mainly been a special-teams contributor in his two seasons.
