It sounds like the Redskins tried to re-sign Clinton-Dix, but to no avail, and it's now apparent the difference-making safety will get a short-term opportunity to increase his market value before returning to free agency in 2020. In Chicago, Clinton-Dix should slot right in at safety next to former Alabama teammate and 2018 first-team All-Pro safety Eddie Jackson. In that role last season, Adrian Amos totaled 73 tackles and nine pass breakups.
Clinton-Dix had 13 tackles (11 solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Texans.
Clinton-Dix has proven to be an elite IDP option with his new team, compiling 28 tackles (24 solo) in three games for the Redskins. He'll continue to have plenty of opportunities in Thursday's matchup with the run-first Cowboys offense.
Clinton-Dix recorded eight tackles, all solo, one pass defensed and a fumble recovery across 69 defensive reps in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.
Clinton-Dix played limited in reps in his first game with the Redskins but was unleashed Sunday, as he played every defensive snap in the contest. He now has 42 tackles on the season along with three interceptions.
While his tackle count was off the pace of the first four seasons of his career (27 in seven games), Clinton-Dix picked off three passes, marking his third straight campaign with at least that number. He'll join a secondary with fair starters in D.J. Swearinger and Montae Nicholson, likely slotting into the No. 1 free safety spot.
Clinton-Dix posted two tackles (both solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Clinton-Dix's two tackles represented his lowest output of the season, but his sack was his first of the year. He hasn't had more than 0.5 sacks in a season since 2015, when he had three. He'll look to maintain his strong play as the Packers aim to get back above .500 next week against the 49ers.
