The NFL’s free agency period started with a flurry of activity. Most of the top players on the market signed within the first few days of the tampering window being opened.
Star safeties like Landon Collins and Tyrann Mathieu signed on the first day, while Earl Thomas needed just one extra day to make his decision. Now, another huge name is off the safety market.
Former Green Bay Packers star Ha Ha Clinton-Dix reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears. Clinton-Dix adds to one of the most-dominant defenses in the league last season.
He’ll help the Bears overcome the loss of Adrian Amos, who signed with the Packers in free agency this year.

Clinton-Dix spent the last half of the 2018 season with the Washington Redskins after being traded by the Packers.
Green Bay shipped Clinton-Dix to Washington for a fourth-round pick in late October.
He finished the season with 65 tackles in just nine games for the Redskins – although he failed to secure an interception.
The former Alabama star was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft and spent five seasons in the NFC North.
Now he returns to face the Packers twice a year.
