Ha Ha Clinton-Dix could be a free agency target for Browns, per PFF

Browns, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

The Cleveland Browns are in need of some help defensively, and Pro Football Focus thinks that safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix could be someone they target in free agency.

Clinton-Dix spent the 2019 campaign with the Chicago Bears, playing in every game and registering 78 tackles, a couple of interceptions, a pair of fumble recoveries, five passes defended and a defensive touchdown.

The 27-year-old, who played his collegiate football at the University of Alabama, was originally selected by the Green Bay Packers in the first round (21st pick overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

He appeared in every contest during his rookie season, finishing with 92 tackles, a sack, a pick, a fumble recovery and six passes defended.

By his third season, Clinton-Dix was a Pro Bowler after totaling 80 tackles, a half of a sack, five interceptions, a forced fumble and seven passes defended.

He had another solid campaign in 2017, recording 79 tackles, three interceptions and six passes defended, but midway through the following year, the Packers traded Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins.

In 16 games between Green Bay and Washington in 2018, the defensive back tallied 93 tackles, a sack, three picks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and six passes defended.

The Bears then signed Clinton-Dix to a one-year deal last March.

In addition to being a solid safety, Clinton-Dix also brings durability to the table, as he has never missed a game in his NFL career.

The Browns won just six games and missed the playoffs in 2019 in spite of entering the season with Super Bowl aspirations. Their disappointing campaign resulted in the firings of head coach Freddie Kitchens and general manager John Dorsey.
