Clutts was signed to a future contract by the Cleveland Browns on January 5, 2011. During the preseason finale against the Bears, Clutts attracted interest from Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub, who felt that Clutts would be a decent addition to the team, which would lead to his signing with the Bears.
He was signed by the Chicago Bears from the Cleveland Brown's practice squad on September 7, 2011 to a three-year deal. When long snapper Patrick Mannelly went down with an injury against the San Diego Chargers, Clutts filled in his role until the arrival of Chris Massey. Clutts was eventually in the running for a spot on the NFC team for the 2012 Pro Bowl, but ultimately did not make it.
