Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

Recommended Posts

The guys pretty much has the coolest name ever, we all like Nicholson but he’s just kinda back there doing whatever while Swearinger makes the plays. It’s a steal IMO. Another defensive Alabama player!

Agreed, I love it!!!!

 

If he hits market we'll get a 2020 3rd, which means it's a wash. 

 

Even if he's a rental in the long tern it costs nothing.

Disagree 

 

I love the move but if they were all in we would've got some WR help. Our biggest hole by far. Our offense has been horrible and Haha can't help that.

As Jay said, we have Wr's they just need to get healthy, plus, we hardly throw the ball. I think Jay really believes in the guys he has and that is exciting in its own right. Which WR would you want and how much of an upgrade would they be? We have a lot invested in Doc, PRich and Crowder plus Harris is ready to contribute. Alex needs to build  chemistry with who we have...this week it shows up.

I hope Clinton Dix likes it here and the bama boys convince him to stay.  He is a FA at the end of the season.  Tag for safeties was at 11 mil in 2018.  Skins could make that work if they needed to by cutting Reed and letting Crowder walk, which I'd be ok with.

 

But we can worry about that later, I'm thrilled to see what this defense can do.

Unbelievable trade I love it. 

 

We're literally unrecognizable with one of the best D-Lines and the best safety tandem in the league. Our notorious weaknesses now our strengths.

I didn't even think of that.  What was g bay thinking?  Just really wanted the pick a year earlier, even tho it's one round later??  Strange.

funny (no pun intended) thing is that I wanted us to get him SOOOO badly in the 2014 draft, just so I could say ha ha whenever he caught an interception, especially against a division rival. 4 years later and my dream is going to come true!! :D

They must just have decided to move on and didn't want to wait. 

 

I've seen quite a few GB games and he does miss tackles and take some bad angles, but he's also a playmaker who can do things that average players cannot.

Are offense has been horrible. Mainly our passing game. He can say what he wants. Doctson is a bust and Crowder is hurt. Should've went after Tate. Or go sign Dez for cheap. It's been 8 weeks of football. I don't see the offense getting any better.

I love this! I think we've shown enough thus far to sacrifice a mid rounder for a player to improve a strength and make us that much more formidable. I pray this passing offense can take strides because if so, watch out.

I love this move!!!  For a 4th?...it’s a steal!  Nicholson is now our 3d safety or we can slide haha in the Harvey-Clemons role.  This is an awesome acquisition.

I don't understand the move, but I love it.  Especially with Tate headed to Philly.

 

I did think that if we did anything it would be for a corner, especially since the Giants are just giving things away on clearance.

 

Glad I picked up our defense in fantasy!

A 4th isn't so bad I guess, but why? We needed a safety right now?  So now I'm supposed to cheer for a guy named HaHa?

With DJ holding Sean's old 36, I wonder what number Dix will take here? Do we have a 20 here?

 

Wait, that's Kelley. 22, 37, are 35 taken as well. Interesting question.

Hoff on 106.7 just said that Nicholson apparently is dinged up, something that wasn't really public knowledge.  Plus Apke going to the IR puts our safeties in tough shape.  HEALTHY safeties are DJ, Everette, and Ladler.

the important question is what number is he gonna wear?
