Bears sign safety 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".

The two sides also agreed to continue working on technology that would do away with the need for border checks. However, the text of the 585-page withdrawal agreement remains unchanged.

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.
