Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Green Bay Packers trade Ty Montgomery to Ravens, Clinton-Dix to the Redskins

Clinton-Dix, a 2016 Pro Bowler who I previously profiled here, was considered the premier player at his position on the trade market, and with the Packers all but guaranteed to not extend his contract this fall, it appeared nearly certain that he'd be playing for a new team in Week 10.

The Green Bay Packers had traded safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix for what is being reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN as a fourth round pick.

Clinton-Dix, who turns 26 in December, is in the fifth-year option of his rookie deal after the Packers took him 21st overall in the 2014 draft.




According to numerous reports, the Packers have traded Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins.

Clinton-Dix's departure leaves a huge hole at the safety position, further additions notwithstanding. Clinton-Dix was a lame duck player in Green Bay. His contract expires after this season. But without Clinton-Dix, a starter, the Packers are now left with Kentrell Brice, Jermaine Whitehead and Josh Jones. Gutekunst will have a plan. The Packers will be flush with cap space next year, especially once Randall Cobb and Clay Matthews come off the books, making it possible Gutekunst will be one of the most aggressive players on the open market. He had indicated earlier this year he didn't anticipate returning to the team when he hits free agency in March 2019. The Clinton-Dix trade presents a huge opportunity for Jones, whose logged just four defensive snaps all season, having playing a major role on special teams instead. He's also Pro Football Focus' (subscription required) third-ranked safety on the season with a grade of 87.7.

That's some pretty incredible value for a fourth-round pick, especially when you consider that the Eagles' current starting free safety, Avonte Maddox, was also selected using a fourth-round pick.
