- Tom Pelissero reports that the Redskins are trading a 2019 fourth-round pick to the Packers for Clinton-Dix.
Clinton-Dix has already said goodbye to Green Bay via his Twitter account:
Reports from recent days mentioned that Clinton-Dix was on the trade block and could be moved before today’s deadline, given that he’s on an expiring deal and set to command a big-money deal in free agency next year.
Clinton-Dix, 25, was taken with the No. 21 overall pick by the Packers back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $8,338,501 contract when the Packers picked up his fifth-year option.
Clinton-Dix will make a base salary of $5,957,000 for the 2018 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
In 2018, Clinton-Dix has appeared in six games for the Packers and recorded 23 tackles, one sack, three interceptions, a forced fumble and three pass defenses.
