Clinton-Dix recorded three tackles (all solo) and an interception in Sunday's 29-29 tie against Minnesota.
Clinton-Dix's three tackles aren't overly impressive, but he made up for it by nabbing an interception in the final minutes of the fourth quarter that nearly iced the game for Green Bay. Looking ahead, the Packers defense will face its first road test of the season as the team heads to Washington to take on the Redskins in Week 3.
Clinton-Dix recorded seven tackles, all solo, in Sunday's 24-23 win over Chicago.
Clinton-Dix recorded a career-low 79 tackles in 2017 and he's looking to bounce back in what is a revamped Green Bay secondary. The 25-year-old safety and the rest of the Packers' defense will have their work cut out for him next week against a loaded Vikings offense.
Clinton-Dix was seen in Green Bay on Monday and will attend this week's mandatory minicamp, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Clinton-Dix, who's in a contract year, was absent from voluntary workouts this spring due to personal reasons. However, his impending participation in minicamp suggests the safety has no intentions of holding out in favor of an extension. Coming off three consecutive 1,000-snap seasons, Clinton-Dix should again command a heavy workload in 2018 as Green Bay's clear-cut starting free safety.
Clinton-Dix hasn't been present for the Packers' OTA practices due to a personal matter, but plans to join the team for mandatory minicamp next week, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports.
There had been some speculation that Clinton-Dix's absence may have been contract-related with his rookie deal expiring after this season, but the safety's expected attendance for minicamp suggests that a holdout likely isn't in the cards. Clinton-Dix, who will carry a cap hit of $5.6 million in 2018, graded out as Pro Football Focus' 40th-ranked safety last season and finished with 79 tackles (65 solo), six pass breakups and three interceptions while suiting up in all 16 games for the fourth straight campaign.
Clinton-Dix finished the 2017 season with 79 tackles (65 solo) and three interceptions over 16 games.
Clinton-Dix's production took a slight step back in 2017, which was a bit of a surprise for a player seemingly on the rise heading into his fourth season. Nevertheless, Clinton-Dix was still an iron man for the Packers, playing over 99 percent of the defensive snaps, and he will be back in his starting free safety spot next season.
