Washington reportedly wants Ha Ha Clinton-Dix back despite signing Landon Collins. There are other teams, though, that need Clinton-Dix more.

The Bears lost Adrian Amos to the rival Packers, leaving an opening in their secondary.

Chicago is hosting Clinton-Dix tonight and tomorrow, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Clinton-Dix, 26, spent part of last season with Washington after the team made a trade with the Packers.

In five NFL seasons, he has one Pro Bowl, 456 tackles, 14 interceptions, 28 passes defensed and four forced fumbles.

  1. This would be rather ironic; it’d be like the Packers and Bears swapped their starting safeties with one another (outside of his half-year stint with Washington).

  2. The guy can ball when he wants to, the problem is he didn’t ever seem to want to the last year with the Pack.
    He was always try to get interceptions and pad his stats, that he completely whiffed on normal coverages.

  3. I could never really figure Clinton-Dix out.
    He obviously has the size and speed, all the overall tools to be a very good Safety in this league.
    He seems to play himself out of position ar times and his ball instincts aren’t very good despite snagging a few interceptions.
    Maybe it’s a case of poor study habits and film review, either way, he’s always been a good kid and I hope he figures it out.

  4. Could do worse for da bears, I don’t want one of those crazy safety contracts that have been coming out the last few days, though!

  5. Sometimes you need to make sure you just knock the ball down, or wrap up a receiver right when he comes down. Everyone wants to make big plays, so its hard to fight the urge, when you see a ball or receiver floating in front of you for a INT or with a big hit, sometimes you just need to keep it simple. If he can do that he will be a great asset to the team that signs him, but if he continues to whiff INTs, or bounce of the ball carrier, he is going to keep giving up big plays.

  6. I mean they could do worse but Ha Ha is pretty much the complete opposite of Amos.

    AA is a very reliable and consistent presence on the field, not a big play machine but almost always in the right spot to at least prevent a big play.

    HHCD is kinda bi-polar on the field, many highs and lows not much in between. Can make the big hit once in a while but hes just a poor tackler in general.

    Maybe a different scheme or playing alongside a stud like EJ will up his game a little bit, who knows.

  7. Haha started out with so much promise and had a couple pretty good years early. He fell completely off the earth when Morgan Burnett was gone. He also didn’t fit well in Pettine’s D. It was time to let him go last season.

    In the right defense I think HaHa could be a positive. I’m not sure what Chuck Pagano is doing in Chicago. Saying you are going to try and be like Vic Fangio and “not much will change”, just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen there.

  8. Clinton-Dix could have been a solid player. After a couple seasons he always seemed to be out of position and confused about what was going on. He wasn’t a finger pointer, but that was because he didn’t care.
