Former safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who played in 71 regular-season games with 65 starts for Green Bay from 2014-18, has informed the club of his decision to retire with the Packers. The announcement was made Thursday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
Clinton-Dix was originally selected by the Packers in the first round (21st overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft out of the University of Alabama. In four-plus seasons with Green Bay, he registered 419 tackles (337 solo), 14 interceptions (No. 1 on the team over that span), 38 passes defensed and three forced fumbles. Clinton-Dix also started all seven postseason contests he played in for the Packers, posting 39 tackles (32 solo), three interceptions and 11 passes defensed.
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.
Clinton-Dix was traded to Washington during the 2018 regular season and started the final nine games. In 2019, he started all 16 games for the Chicago Bears and appeared in two contests for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021. He also spent time with the Dallas Cowboys (2020), San Francisco 49ers (2021) and Denver Broncos (2021).
