The Green Bay Packers traded running back Ty Montgomery in the hour prior to the NFL’s trade deadline, but general manager Brian Gutekunst was not done.
Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is on the move, as was first reported by Ian Rapoport. He has been traded to Washington, and the compensation coming back to Green Bay is a fourth-round pick in 2019, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Just moments before the report came in, Clinton-Dix tweeted out the following cryptic message:
Much love y’all— Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (@haha_cd6) October 30, 2018
Ha Ha is in the final year of his rookie contract, having received a fifth-year option for this season. This leaves the Packers with major questions about their safety depth.
In seven games this season, Clinton-Dix recorded three interceptions and one sack while totaling 27 total tackles. One of those interceptions came off Washington quarterback Alex Smith in the Packers’ week three loss. He has 11 interceptions since the start of 2016, including five that season, when he made the Pro Bowl. However, he appeared to regress in 2017.
Clinton-Dix goes to Washington where he will presumably pair with D.J. Swearinger at safety.
