Ha Ha Clinton-Dix finished his studies at Alabama back in 2018. He was set to degree, four years after finishing his Alabama career in 2014.

His decision to go back to finish his degree is impressive, given that he's had a very successful NFL career during that time. One problem...

Alabama hasn't released his degree yet. And the decision is pretty ridiculous.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix revealed that he hadn't received his Alabama degree yet over $1.

Schools will often withhold degrees due to unpaid student fees. They can get pretty high, when you factor in the cost of a college education in the U.S.

That isn't the case with Ha Ha, though. He only owed $1, which he didn't realize, and was worried that he hadn't done everything he needed to finish.

Luckily, as a first-round pick with over $14 million career earnings and $3 million coming in 2019, he can cover it. Clinton-Dix finished up his criminal justice degree last May, and walked at Alabama graduation.

The former Packer was traded during the season to Washington. Now, he has a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears.

Back at Alabama, Clinton-Dix was a two-time national champion, and an All-American as a junior in 2013. He left after three years, and was the No. 21 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
