Packers trade Clinton-Dix to Redskins for 2019 4th-round pick

Ha Ha Clinton Dix watches Sean Taylor highlights to hype himself up pre-game USA Today Sports

Aiming to improve a defense that's carried them to the top of the NFC East, the Washington Redskins added safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from the Green Bay Packers at Tuesday's National Football League trade deadline for a 2019 fourth-round draft pick.

Clinton-Dix was selected by Green Bay in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft and emerged as a standout defender.

And granted, it's not like the Redskins stole Clinton-Dix out from under the Eagles, as there's no evidence the team even inquired about his services, but for the low, low price of a fourth-round pick, I would much rather see the 26-year-old Pro Bowler suit up in midnight green as opposed to red and yellow moving forward.

New Washington Redskins safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix says he will "be suited up this weekend" to play for the NFC East leaders, whether it's on defense or special teams. It seems likely Green Bay didn't want to pay him after this season, as he remains in a contract year.

Clinton-Dix had recorded three interceptions, three passes defensed, one forced fumble and 27 tackles for the Packers this season.

Just ahead of the deadline, the Packers indeed made a deal involving their starting free safety.

So let's grade the trade for both sides. Clinton-Dix can certainly help there, with 11 interceptions and 16 pass breakups over the last two-and-a-half seasons.

Clinton Dix will be a free agent after the season as the Packers picked up his fifth-year option in May.

If Green Bay was resigned to looking strictly toward 2019, parting with Clinton-Dix could be explained more easily.

"He's one of the best to ever play this game", Clinton-Dix said of Taylor.

Tate was actually benched at Soldier Field two Decembers ago, the last time the Lions lost to the Bears, but he's a really good player who has contributed a ton to Detroit going 7-1 against Chicago since his signing.
