According to Mike Garafolo, Clinton-Dix gets a one-year, $3.5 million contract from the Bears. Garafolo adds that it sounds like Clinton-Dix had more money on the table elsewhere, but wanted to be in Chicago.
Recent reports mentioned that the Redskins were interested in bringing him back, but it looks like the Bears stepped up to close the deal.
Chicago lost Adrian Amos to the Packers, so they could use another safety and Clinton-Dix happened to be the best available option.
Clinton-Dix, 26, 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.
Green Bay later traded Clinton-Dix to the Redskins last year for a fourth-round pick.
Clinton-Dix made a base salary of $5,957,000 for the 2018 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Clinton-Dix appeared all 16 games for the Packers and Redskins and recorded 93 tackles, one sack, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, a recovery and six pass defenses.
