Raiders Host Ha Ha Clinton-Dix On Visit

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix did not play last season; the Cowboys released him prior to Week 1. But the former first-round pick has drawn some interest this offseason.

The Raiders are hosting the veteran safety Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. This comes shortly after they hosted cornerback A.J. Bouye, whom The Athletic’s Vic Tafur notes left Las Vegas without a contract agreement (Twitter link).

Prior to Clinton-Dix’s Cowboys agreement, he played for the Packers, Washington and the Bears. He has never missed a game due to injury and has started every game in which he has played since taking over as a Green Bay starter as a rookie in 2014. Clinton-Dix made the Pro Bowl in 2016 and graded as Pro Football Focus’ No. 19 overall safety in 2019.

Las Vegas has Johnathan Abram and ex-Cowboy Jeff Heath returning at safety, with Erik Harris on track for free agency. Despite Clinton-Dix’s extensive experience, he will only be 28 this coming season. Considering his 2020 absence, the former Alabama star would certainly be available at a low-cost rate.

    Gruden and his sock puppet Mayock love names – but they have no clue how to evaluate talent. Gruden is a .500 coach, which would ordinarily be enough to get you fired – if you don’t have a 10 year contract – just ask Jeff Fisher.

        Almost similar to elway in a way. Arrogant and big ego and only 1 super bowl as a gm…..despite having loaded rosters. Now Peyton is gone got exposed as a poor evaluator with roster. Don’t throw rocks from a glass house

    Cue da Bears’ fans to regale us with stories of him being sooooo much better than Amos. It’s just not even close, apparently.

    Got to watch a few games of Ha Ha during his time in DC. It might have been the scheme, maybe the play calling, maybe the surrounding talent, maybe even the environment…

    But he looked lost in the sauce…

    Clearly not what is needed in Las Vegas.

    • Ha Ha wants to collect an NFL paycheque. He doesn’t want to tackle or hit any more. Not a good secondary option. Terrible Redskins trade (originally looked good on paper).

    I’m not going to say the secondary isn’t without it’s flaws, but I don’t understand spending money there when they need pass pressure. If they could generate more heat on the QB the secondary would see some improvement.
