Bears sign safety Clinton-Dix to 1-year deal

Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.

The Chicago Bears' dynamic defense lost a bit of its luster early on in 2019 free agency when general manager Ryan Pace elected to not retain slot corner Bryce Callahan and safety Adrian Amos signed with the division rival Packers.

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

Clinton-Dix was selected by the Packers with the No. 21 pick in the 2014 draft.

The #Bears are signing S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to a 1-year deal, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo.

Clinton-Dix played every defensive snap while with Green Bay and did the same in seven of his nine games with the Redskins.

Before then, in 71 games with Green Bay, he picked off 14 passes, forced three fumbles, recovered a fumble, made 390 tackles including eight for losses.

The Redskins added Alabama's Landon Collins in free agency and might have wanted to keep Clinton-Dix too after trading for him in the middle of last season. He earned a Pro Bowl invitation during the 2016 season.
