Bears Sign Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to One-Year Deal

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

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

Now, Clinton-Dix will join his second new team in the span of six months.

Pagano got a look at what Ha Ha Clinton-Dix - whom the Bears signed to a one-year contract Thursday that a source confirmed is worth $3.5 million - is capable of from a playmaking standpoint in 2016.

Clinton-Dix, a first-round pick of the Packers in 2014, was traded to the Washington Redskins at the trade deadline last season.

Despite the popular opinion that Clinton-Dix's play deteriorated after the trade to the Redskins past year, his Pro Football Focus grade of 79.3 was actually the best of his career, and 17th-best among safeties in the NFL. In nine games with the Redskins, he had 65 tackles with three pass deflections.

In his five National Football League seasons, Clinton-Dix has 456 tackles, 14 interceptions, 28 passes broken-up, 5.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Clinton-Dix fills the hole left by Amos, and does so with plenty of experience within the NFC North. He earned a Pro Bowl invitation during the 2016 season.
