Clinton-Dix already has a rapport with incumbent Bears safety Eddie Jackson, as the former hosted the latter in college when Jackson made his official visit to Alabama.

Clinton-Dix was traded from Green Bay to Washington during the season for a fourth-round pick, seemingly lowering his value to the point where the Bears could get him on this type of contract.

His agreement with the Bears, first reported by the NFL Network, comes after the team lost starting safety Adrian Amos to the Green Bay Packers in free agency.

In Chicago, Clinton-Dix will help replace Amos, who signed a four-year deal worth $37 million in Green Bay. He had 93 tackles, three interceptions, six passes defended and a fumble recovery in 2018. He didn't have an interception with Washington but almost doubled his tackle rate to finish with 66 in nine games with the Redskins. During the 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons, Clinton-Dix hardly came off the field for the Packers' defense. He has started 16 games in each of the past four seasons and has 14 career interceptions in five seasons.
