Bears signing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to a one-year contract

But Amos signed a four-year, $37 million deal with the Packers.

Despite the popular opinion that Clinton-Dix's play deteriorated after the trade to the Redskins a year ago, his Pro Football Focus grade of 79.3 was actually the best of his career, and 17th-best among safeties in the NFL.

But Clinton-Dix fell out of favor with a new defensive coaching staff, led by DC Mike Pettine, and new GM Brian Gutekunst, who traded Clinton-Dix to Washington for a fourth-round draft choice. The Bears are adding safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in free agency, NFL Network reported on Thursday afternoon.

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

The signing of HaHa Clinton-Dix is a smart one from a financial perspective for the Chicago Bears. Being able to shift and rotate Clinton-Dix and Jackson will give the defense a much more aggressive form of attack. "He's got a lot of interceptions and he's not scared to hit anybody". Having a guy like that, he came from Alabama, one of the best college systems in college football and then carrying it over to the NFL as a playmaker. Chicago waited for the safety market to settle and got Clinton-Dix on a reasonable, short-term contract.

Signing Clinton-Dix was another stroke of genius by Pace. In nine games with the Redskins, he had 65 tackles with three pass deflections. That's not to say Clinton-Dix is better than Amos, but it's something worth noting here. He also made a critical play in Week 1 to prevent the Bears from getting a first down that helped spark the Packers' comeback.
