Bears signing former Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton Dix to 1-year deal

Amos helped the Bears boast the NFL's top pass defense in 2018.

The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears have pulled off a safety swap of sorts this offseason.

After playing in 78 consecutive Green Bay games (including the playoffs) after joining the Packers as a first-round draft choice in 2014, Clinton-Dix will be on his third team in less than a year. He played in 71 games for Green Bay before the Redskins acquired him in October 2018. The NFL Network, which first reported the move, said it's a one-year deal for $3.5 million.

Per Garafolo, Clinton-Dix had "more on the table elsewhere".

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.

New Bears cornerback Buster Skrine spent time with Clinton-Dix on Thursday morning, during the latter's visit to the Bears. In nine games with the Redskins, Clinton-Dix had 66 tackles. An offer to return to Washington was among his options, but Clinton-Dix ultimately decided on the one-year deal with Chicago, an up-and-coming team coming off a division title.

The safety figures to have a good chance to replace Amos alongside Eddie Jackson in the back of the Bears' defensive backfield.
