Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s role “will expand quite a bit”

In his debut with Washington, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix participated in 48 of 68 defensive snaps. He could end up doing a lot more this week.

“[H]e looks a lot more comfortable,” coach Jay Gruden told reporters on Thursday. “He’s a very bright guy like I said last week. I think his role will expand quite a bit.”

Clinton-Dix’s presence did nothing to help Washington beat the Falcons. This week, the challenge will be to slow down an offense that is capable of generating significant yardage and points.

A first-round pick from Alabama in 2014, the Packers traded Clinton-Dix to Washington on the final day of the 2018 period. He’s due to become a free agent in March.

  1. Ha Ha is a great guy and a positive influence in the locker room.
    Long and rangy body, good enough speed to play safety.
    All the physical abilities and traits are there.
    It really just comes down to the intangibles.
    I don’t know if it’s a lack of awareness or just plain study habits with him.
    He simply guesses too much trying to make the big play.
    Plays himself out of position too often.
    It’s too bad because it isn’t a lack of skills with him.
    I hope he finds happiness and success in Washington.

    He didn’t know where to line up last week, he looked lost

  3. Unless he can play on the offensive line, it won’t really matter. The skins have to figure out how to compensate for losing half of their offensive line for the rest of the year.

  4. Name of the team is the Redskins. Like the Red Mesa High Redskins, located on a Navajo reservation. And no, they won’t lose their trademark as you were all excited about.

  5. He actually runs away from contact like a girl. Vastly overrated. Has caught some overthrows this year but is useless in the running game. The film doesnt lie.

    Washing the stench of garbage Green bay defenses off you will take a moment.

    That “stench”, as you call it, is in reality Championship scent.
    As a Barney fan, I can see why it’d be foreign to you.
