Ha Ha Clinton-Dix says he’ll play for Redskins this weekend

181019_Practice-27

According to numerous reports, the Packers have traded Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins.

Montgomery (6-0, 216) played in 36 regular-season games with 14 starts for Green Bay since being selected by the Packers in the third round (No. 94 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Stanford.

After it was reported that Packers running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery failed to obey coaches' orders to take a knee in the end zone on a play that resulted in him fumbling the kickoff and blowing the game, Green Bay has reportedly traded him to the Baltimore Ravens.

Clinton-Dix was selected by Green Bay in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft and emerged as a standout defender. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2016.

Clinton-Dix's departure leaves a huge hole at the safety position, further additions notwithstanding.

The Packers still have one open roster spot left to fill.

"I watch a lot of his games, I study his tape", Clinton-Dix said of Swearinger. It remains likely that Brice will slide over to free safety, with Whitehead taking on a larger role at strong safety. That leaves Brice and Whitehead as the primary contributors. The little used, former second round pick Josh Jones could be another. Clinton-Dix took the time to post a heartfelt goodbye message to Packers' fans on his personal Twitter account.

If worse comes to worst, the Packers might look at moving Tramon Williams permanently to safety. "I think anyone who has played in the National Football League understands this is a performance business, so if you don't perform, there will be consequences".

For just a fourth-round pick, it remains somewhat unclear the motive behind dealing away Clinton-Dix.

After Montgomery made a decision to take the final kickoff on Sunday out of the end zone and Clinton-Dix' talk earlier about not being in Green Bay next season, neither move is a total surprise. Clinton-Dix watched as the Packers failed to re-sign cornerback Casey Heyward and safety Micah Hyde.
