In a statement released by Green Bay, the team lauded Clinton-Dix’s contributions during his four years with the team, which were also his most productive professional years.
“Clinton-Dix was named to the Pro Bowl and earned second-team All-Pro recognition from The Associated Press and All-NFC honors from the Pro Football Writers Association in 2016 after leading the team with a career-high five interceptions (tied for No. 5 in the NFL and No. 2 among safeties). In 2015, he led the team with a career high 117 tackles (97 solo) and recorded a career-best three sacks, the most by a Green Bay safety in a season since Mark Roman had 3½ in 2004. The consensus All-America selection for the Crimson Tide in 2013 ranked No. 2 on the Packers with 95 tackles (73 solo) in 2014 and was named to the PFWA’s All-Rookie team.”
A former standout at Alabama, Dix was traded to the Redskins in 2018 for a fourth-round Draft pick. He bounced around to several teams, including stints on the Bears’ and Bronco’s practice squads before becoming a free agent.
