Green Bay exercises Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s fifth-year option
- After struggling slightly in his rookie season, Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has emerged as one of the best safeties in the NFL as he has graded above 83.0 in each of the past two seasons.
- In 2016, he allowed a passer rating of just 61.2 when he was the primary defender in coverage, which ranked eighth in the league.
- His tackling has become one of the few bright spots on a Green Bay secondary that struggled to limit big plays in 2016.
- Clinton-Dix missed just three tackles in all of 2016, which was tied for the third-lowest at the safety position. Furthermore, he did not miss a single tackle on runs while making 33 tackles on these plays, including eight defensive stops.
