Packers exercise HaHa Clinton-Dix’s 2018 option

Add Packers safety HaHa Clinton-Dix to the list of 2014 first-round picks who have had their options for the 2018 season picked up.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers have officially exercised the option, which is guaranteed for injury only. Barring a major turnaround in Clinton-Dix’s play, it seems much more likely that the Packers will work on an extension for the safety than backing out of the option before the start of the 2018 league year.

Clinton-Dix has not missed a game in three years with the Packers and he’s started all of them after moving into the first team for the seventh game of his rookie season. He’s coming off a season that saw him record 80 tackles, five interceptions and a forced fumble on the way to both a spot as a second-team All-Pro and the NFC Pro Bowl team.

With Clinton-Dix’s option exercised, 21 first-round picks from 2014 have either had their options picked up or had their teams say they are planning to do so ahead of Wednesday’s deadline. You can see the whole list right here.

    Give the man his contract extension sooner than later.
    The price isn’t going to go down, only up the longer you wait.

    So thankful that the Jets took Calvin Pryor and let HHCD fall to Green Bay.

    One of Julio Jones’s victims on that inept defense.

    NOT !
    Gunter was burned time and time again.

    Julio approves of this!!!

    Seems like a smart move — you’ve gotta wonder how much his play was impacted (and thus blamed) by the Pack’s crappy CBs.

    “So thankful that the Jets took Calvin Pryor and let HHCD fall to Green Bay.”

    I heard the Jets were anxious to replace him…

    HaHa is the perfect name for someone playing in that secondary….

    Great signing for a pro bowl Safety. But wait, how can that be… Ariani said that the Packer Safety’s were the worst in football??

    That may be true. What’s even funnier is how the Packers continue to own the Vikings year after year. What’s with that?

    HaHa.

    Ha Ha is better than any viking safety.

  13. usedjock says: May 2, 2017 8:10 AM

    As a Packers fan I think Ha Ha is one of the only bright spots on that defense. His play at times has been affected by the dismal CB play on that D and he is having to compensate for them getting burned.

    Big PACK guy here. Not sure how too feel about the extension. Kinda hoped we’d draft a replacement. HeHe was not great against the Falcs. Ah well, so it is. GO PACK

    Neither has Dix

  16. siuleno says: May 2, 2017 11:49 PM

    neither have the Vikings.

    Another great 1st round pick by Ted Thompson.

  18. seals1 says: May 3, 2017 6:09 PM

    Sorry Ha Ha, Ted already has a comp pic with your name on it in his trophy case. If Ted believed in his picks he would keep them. Green Bay is the textbook example that one position runs the league. You can’t say the pack have not had excellent QB play for a crazy amount of years. For that you have to hand it to Ted. With 90% of other qb options Ted would be picking up cans after a home game. If I was Ted I’d start looking for Rogers replacement.

    You are kidding……… Right? Rodgers is only 33.
    He has at least 5 great years barring a serious injury. Maybe more …………………….

    Meanwhile, the vikings backfield is planning new mutiny for the upcoming season!
