Despite not playing in 2020, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has remained on teams’ radars for a potential role this season. The Colts are the latest team to meet with the former first-round pick.
Clinton-Dix trekked to Indianapolis for a workout Thursday, according to ESPN.com’s Field Yates (on Twitter), joining other players at this audition. The six-year veteran has been on the market for nearly a year. The Cowboys cut him just before Week 1 last year.
The Colts followed the Panthers, Texans and Raiders by meeting with Clinton-Dix this year. Clinton-Dix, 28, played with the Bears in 2019 and worked as a full-time starter. Overall, the Alabama product has 90 starts and a Pro Bowl on his resume. Although Clinton-Dix’s Cowboys stay did not pan out, Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 19 overall safety in 2019.
Indy has Julian Blackmon and Khari Willis in place as its starting safeties, with the latter taking over for Malik Hooker — who has since landed with the Cowboys — after his September Achilles tear. The Colts also used a fifth-round pick on Shawn Davis this year. Creating some potential confusion, they also have ex-Steelers starter Sean Davis among their safeties. Six-year vet Ibraheim Campbell also resides on the Colts’ roster.
