Former Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to join Chicago Bears

Former Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to join Chicago Bears

Committing to one year of Clinton-Dix could allow the Bears to draft a safety to potentially be a cheap, long-term replacement (and the Bears found their prior safety pairing, Jackson and Amos, in the fourth and fifth rounds, respectively).

Clearly, Clinton-Dix is an upgrade in Chicago's effort to combat the high-flying passing attack in today's pro game.

Clinton-Dix played every defensive snap while with Green Bay and did the same in seven of his nine games with the Redskins.

The Bears are signing ex-Packers first-round S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to a one-year, $3.5 million contract, NFL Media first reported Thursday.

Clinton-Dix earned consensus All-American recognition at Alabama in 2013, when he had a freshman teammate at cornerback named Eddie Jackson.

"I know he's a playmaker; that's one thing he does", Bears new nickel CB Buster Skrine said of Clinton-Dix, with whom he's already visited at Halas Hall this week.

By comparison, Amos has just three interceptions in his four seasons in the NFL.

Signing Clinton-Dix was another stroke of genius by Pace. That's not to say Clinton-Dix is better than Amos, but it's something worth noting here. The Packers defeated the Bears 30-27. "He's going to stay on top of you. but he's going to do it from a brotherly standpoint, not a coach standpoint".
