Packers sign Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix AP

Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is free to laugh all the way to the bank.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Packers and the 21st overall pick from this month’s draft have agreed to terms on his contract. As with all first-round picks, it is a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth year that they must choose to exercise before Clinton-Dix’s fourth NFL season.

Based on the ability to cover both the run and pass he showed at Alabama and the Packers’ need for a playmaker at the position, Clinton-Dix is expected to nab the starting free safety job right out of the gate in Green Bay. Morgan Burnett will likely be next to him and the defense will likely improve if Clinton-Dix makes a relatively seamless transition to the professional ranks.

Second-round wide receiver Davante Adams and third-round tight end Richard Rodgers are the only unsigned members of the Packers draft class.

    Welcome to the best franchise in the sport. You’re used to winning a lot of football games, and that won’t change. You’re on the best team (by far) in the division.

    I watched every Alabama game last season.

    This guy was overshadowed by a great defensive line.

    He’s known for missing many tackles and is sub-par car in college.

    There’s a reason 21 teams passed on him.

    When’s the last time a Defensive Alabama player has been good in the NFL anyways?

    Skol.

    I can’t wait to watch Ha-Ha Clinton Bust get burned by Cordarelle Patterson for multiple touchdowns this year.

  4. scoops1 says: May 29, 2014 3:51 PM

    I don’t like him wearing #21

    that number should be retired

    Kyle Fuller > Ha Ha Clinton-Bust

  6. lightningdj says: May 29, 2014 3:55 PM

    I hope he becomes Jay Cutler’s leading receiver. With every interception I will say “Ha Ha”

  7. abqpacker says: May 29, 2014 3:59 PM

    He was actually the 21st pick and the Rams picked twice – so only 19 teams passed on him….

  8. rosstuckershair says: May 29, 2014 4:00 PM

    He will be lucky to not be suspended with a blunt in the background of his facebook picture…

  9. In Teddy We Trust says: May 29, 2014 4:01 PM

    Looks like Ha Ha will be laughing all the way to the bank.

  10. thepftpoet says: May 29, 2014 4:04 PM

    A very, very overrated safety.

    The Bears, Vikings and Lions both had a solid offseason.

    All three teams will do a great job of competing for the NFC north this year.

    Look for the Packers to be the bottom of the barrel for many years now, like all of the 70′s & 80′s when they didn’t win one division title.

    Marcel Dareus and Donta Hightower have been pretty good Alabama defensive players in the NFL.
    When’s the last time a Louisville QB did well in the NFL? I know it wasn’t Brian Brohm.
    Of course Heidi fans were right last year when they predicted that fat, slow, and soft Eddie Lacy would be a bust. So they’re probably onto something again.
    Or just on something.

    LOL

  13. thevikingslol says: May 29, 2014 4:14 PM

    Man it must suck to not know what winning a super bowl is like as a fan.

  14. jcbadger34 says: May 29, 2014 4:20 PM

    If there’s a reason why 21 teams passed on Ha-Ha…..what’s the reason why all teams in the first round, including the Vikings, passed on Teddy Bridgewater? The latest in the long line of bust QBs taken by the worst QB-developing franchise in the history of the NFL Or just the worst franchise period.

    SkLOL.

    Welcome to the funny farm!!!

  16. f1restarter says: May 29, 2014 4:35 PM

    Judging by their posts, I would say Vikings fans are VERY worried and scared by how good the Packers defense is going to be this year.

  17. ickky says: May 29, 2014 4:36 PM

    A soft saftey who doesn’t hit. Great pick up Turds

  18. irishstout says: May 29, 2014 4:39 PM

    It won’t be Ha Ha and Burnett. It will be Ha Ha and Micah Hyde. Hyde practiced with the first team as a Safety to open OTAs. Ha Ha practiced with the second, but he’ll have replaced Burnett by the season opener.

    And so it begins. The march to another super bowl victory! Can’t wait!

  21. thevikesarebest says: May 29, 2014 4:52 PM

    Turd Thompson draft bust.

  22. In Teddy We Trust says: May 29, 2014 5:06 PM

    He won’t be laughing the first time he sees Adrian Peterson barreling down on him or Cordarrelle Patterson going over the top of him.

  23. veence69 says: May 29, 2014 5:27 PM

    I knew the Packers would take this guy. I was worried they might pick up a stud safety like Deone Bucannon, but Ted Thompson came through by once again drafting the undersized guy with the funny sounding name.

    Seriously though, I’m so happy Deone Bucannon isn’t in my division..

  24. whatjusthapped says: May 29, 2014 5:29 PM

    A Packer story with the Viking trolls all over it, just remember, the Packers record vs. the Vikings in the past 4 years is 7-1-1.

    You have to admit he’s got a pretty good name.

  26. packerfan12 says: May 29, 2014 5:54 PM

    Haha will instantly improve our defense. I believe we had the worst starting safety in the league last year in M.D Jennings, and Burnett was trying to cover too much ground to cover for him. Even if he isn’t the player we hope him to be in the future, he is by far an instant upgrade, and will probably help Morgan Burnett’s play as well.

    I think the Packers will come away with another NFC North division title, and win a game or two in the play-offs this year. Our defense CAN’T be any worse than they were last year, plus we didn’t have Aaron Rodgers for 7 games, and STILL won the division. Other teams in our division may have talent, but they haven’t put it all together yet, or have found a way to fall apart.

    As long as we make the play-offs with Aaron Rodgers anything can happen, can’t wait for the season to start!

  27. beerbratscheese says: May 29, 2014 6:43 PM

    The Packers signed Ha-Ha, but the joke will be on the rest of the NFC North teams for the next 10-15 years.

  28. cjmulhern says: May 29, 2014 7:55 PM

    Dear Viking Fans,

    Real Vikings didn’t wear horns. The reference was first used by the 19th century opera in depicting the Norse. So as your team prances on the field, just remember your roots are to a fat lady in a wig, not to the artic conquerors.

    That would explain your resistance to actually building a stadium outdoors.

  29. wheezerswin says: May 29, 2014 8:58 PM

    The Vikings passed on Aaron Rodgers for Troy Williamson. One of the many reasons the Vikings are a perennial last place team. Yet they always manage to find a way to pick all the busts of each draft class. Looks like the champs will continue their hold on the Norris.

  30. ezcheese says: May 29, 2014 9:59 PM

    Good for him. Now let’s get to work!

  31. tokyofilthblaster says: May 29, 2014 10:48 PM

    One of the great things about being a Packer is that Ha Ha will get to contend virtually every year. It’s one of the many perks of playing for the most storied franchise in the NFL.

  32. axespray says: May 30, 2014 6:48 AM

    Now that we’ve signed most (or all) of our draft picks, do we have enough cap room to resign/extend Jordy and Cobb?

  33. tonyc920 says: May 30, 2014 12:23 PM

    The draft picks do not count against the cap until they have to cut down to 51. I’ll step out here and predict they put deals together for both by training camp in July.

  34. ariani1985 says: May 30, 2014 12:25 PM

    Will Ha Ha laugh when turd bay loses in the first round for a 6th straight year?

  35. shepwp1 says: May 30, 2014 1:16 PM

    I must admit, I was totally against TT trading up to get Clay Matthews and I was proven wrong, so if TT says HaHa is the guy, all I gotta say is in Ted we trust!
