REDSKINS ACQUIRE S HA HA CLINTON-DIX

 

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have acquired safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from the Green Bay Packers in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

 

Clinton-Dix will be available to the media at a press conference at Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 12:15 p.m.

 

Clinton-Dix (6-1, 208) is a five-year NFL veteran who entered the league as the No. 21 overall pick by the Green Bay Packers in the 2014 NFL Draft. He has appeared in 71 career regular season games with 65 starts.

 

Clinton-Dix has started every regular-season and postseason game for Green Bay since the start of the 2015 season. He has recorded 14 career interceptions for 116 yards in regular-season play to complement 373 tackles (294 solo), 25 passes defensed, 5.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

 

In postseason play, he has started all seven games in which he has appeared and has registered three interceptions for 48 yards, 30 tackles (24 solo), 11 passes defensed and one tackle for loss. His three career postseason interceptions are tied for No. 1 in the NFL (Panthers LB Luke Kuechly and Patriots S Duron Harmon) since he entered the league in 2014.

 

For the 2018 campaign, he currently has three interceptions for 25 yards, 27 tackles (24 solo), three passes defensed, one sack and a forced fumble. The three interceptions on the season is tied for second most in the league heading into Week 9.  

 

In 2017, Clinton-Dix started all 16 games for the third consecutive regular season, finishing third on the team with 86 tackles and second with three interceptions. He was named to his first career Pro Bowl in 2016 and earned second team All-Pro recognition from The Associated Press and All-NFC honors from the PFWA after leading the team with a career-high five interceptions (tied for No. 5 in the NFL and No. 2 among safeties).

 

At the end of the 2015 season, Clinton-Dix set a career high with a team-leading 117 tackles (97 solo) and recorded a career-best three sacks, the most by a Green Bay safety in a season. For his rookie season in 2014, he played in all 16 games in 2014, starting the final 10 contests of the season. It was the most starts by a Packers rookie safety since 2005. Since entering the league in 2014, Clinton-Dix’s 14 interceptions are tied for the eighth most in the NFL in that time span. His 5.5 sacks during that frame are tied for the fifth most in the NFL among safeties.  

 

Clinton-Dix played collegiately at Alabama and was a consensus All-America selection in 2013 as a junior, earning first-team recognition from The Associated Press, the Football Writers Association of America and Sporting News. He was named the team’s Defensive Player of the Week four times in 2013.

 

Clinton-Dix, 25, attended Dr. Phillips H.S. in Orlando, Fla. where he earned USA Today High School All-America honors in 2010. He was born December 21, 1992.
