This offseason has been quite interesting for the Dallas Cowboys, as they've said goodbye to plenty of players from last year's team. However, the front office has done a solid job replacing the talent that has departed in free agency.

In an effort to help improve their secondary, the Cowboys signed Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to a one-year deal. According to NFL Network reporter Jane Slater, the contract is worth $4 million and includes $2.5 million fully guaranteed.

Last season, Clinton-Dix had 78 tackles, five passes defended and two interceptions with the Chicago Bears. He's also spent time with the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins.

Clinton-Dix's agency, SportsTrust Advisors, announced that he would be heading to Dallas on Thursday night. It's a savvy move for a secondary that lost Byron Jones to Miami and Jeff Heath to the Las Vegas.

At 27 years old, Clinton-Dix has a chance to rebuild his value with a solid year in Dallas.

There's no shortage of talent when it comes to Clinton-Dix. After all, he went in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

In addition to adding Clinton-Dix to its defense for the 2020 season, Dallas also signed Gerald McCoy. We'll see if these two acquisitions can help improve the starting unit this fall.
