The Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement with safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, his agency announced Thursday night.

Clinton-Dix reunites with head coach Mike McCarthy, who served as head coach of the Green Bay Packers when Clinton-Dix was drafted by the team in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Clinton-Dix played four full seasons with the Packers under McCarthy but was traded to the Washington Redskins during the middle of the 2018 season. After appearing in nine games for Washington to close out that year, Clinton-Dix moved on to the Chicago Bears last season.

Clinton-Dix hasn’t missed a single game during his six seasons in the NFL and has started all but six games (all as a rookie) over that span. Clinton-Dix made the Pro Bowl and was a second-team All-Pro for his 2016 season with the Packers.

Clinton-Dix has 16 career interceptions, four forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks and 33 passes defended for his career.

Per Jane Slater of the NFL Network, it’s a one-year deal worth $4 million with $2.5 million guaranteed.

  1. Good signing. We’re shopping in the bargain bins right now but that strategy worked out with Robert Quinn and Randall Cobb last year

  2. Certainly an upgrade over Heath, maybe another piece or two in the draft and hopefully this defense can come around to upper level

  3. This guy is a reliable journeyman. Is he a game-changer? No, but very few players are.

  4. This is a solid signing, Dix isn’t a superstar, but the Cowboys didn’t give him outragious FA money. There is value in this signing and I can’t stand that he went to the Cowboys.

  5. I wish I knew what happened to Ha Ha.
    When we drafted him,… the 1st 2 years he was lights out good. But that 3rd year he started to avoid hitting and his tackling dropped off badly. And it continued into his 4th year and finally in his 5th year the Packers moved him to Washington for a mere pittance. It’s the same reason Wash and Chicago moved on from him.
    He’s a great character,… but his play on the field turned disappointing.
    Best of luck to Ha-Ha.

  6. I hope for the Cowboys’ sake they aren’t planning on using him as an in the box safety

  7. Well, I mean, if you consider that the Cowboys went 8-8, lost the division to the injury-decimated Eagles, missed the playoffs and then both Quinn & Cobb walked in free agency … then sure.

  8. His stats don’t look that great. I don’t think those are even mediocre. 16 picks, 4 forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks and 33 passes defensed? In 6 years? And never missed a game? I’m not guaranteeing anything, but I think any one of us could stand on the field without moving and get half of those numbers.
