Doesn't seem the new skins way of doing things (i'm ok with that)
There is no chance of a contract extension plan in place. They are renting Dix for 9 or 10 games for a 4th round pick. However, they could get a late 4th round compensatory pick back in the 2020 draft.

I doubt they re-sign him. If he has a great year he will be too expensive, if not then I am not interested in signing him.

Get rid of DJ. Most certainly not. Dude is beasting and is a team leader. Rather keep him, rent dix, and get the comp pick if we can't sign him.

This works ...

I like the fact he was cheap to get, comes with a compensatory pick if we can't sign him ... and basically gives us options should Ha Ha ball out.

I am hoping that his Alabama roots, helps him rediscover his passion for tackling, and cures whatever BS locker room attitude he was showing in Green Bay.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Talk about unexpectedly pleasant news to hear.

If we get this graded-87 from PFF Clinton-Dix a 4th rounder will be a steal, especially knowing we are getting at least a 3rd round comp pick for Cousins next year.

I don't know how much of an impact he'll make so soon as I'm sure it will take some time for him to learn, but count me as someone unimpressed with Montae Nicholson so far.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Tape on HA HA is good from a standpoint that he doesn't come up in run d often but hes very good in coverage and doesn't make mistakes. Just finished every snap from the Rams game, he will add that playmaking that Montae lacks just yet.

Also, Montae has had some injuries, although not this year, so its good depth. We have 3 starters for 2 positions. Definition of depth.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Not sure I agree with giving up a fourth round pick for a guy we keep for the rest of this season and he moves on.. hopefully he plays well and figures into the future. We have a championship defense in the making and hopefully Smith can start clicking with his receivers... I will have to say Gruden has impressed me last few games with play calling! He is making the best out of an offense that has been struggling with the pass.. maybe his best coaching so far . Could it be we are turning the corner ?? Hope so!

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Love it. We needed it and I'm OK giving up a 4th with a possible 2020 compensatory pick if we don't sign him.

Dude is going to have to find a new number though

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Love the move. The fact that he's likely to sign a big contract next year, thus giving us a compensatory pick makes it a 0 risk high reward move.

Reading you guys really made me think this is a 9 games rental: Montae was playing lights out last year, but this year he's playing scared IMO. So get a proven veteran in there, just before playing one of the best aerial attack in the league, let him walk next year, get the pick, keep drafting well, and hope Montae is back to being his old self!

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

So think about the way the compensatory pick formula works because this is bloody brilliant. By trading a 4th rounder the Redskins acquire a player on his rookie deal, expiring this offseason. We could take a crack at resigning him. If we decide not to though, and he gets a big deal in free agency, then it helps us in the compensatory pick formula.

Depending who we sign in the same offseason, and depending how much Ha Ha signs for elsewhere, we could end up getting a 4th rounder coming back to us in 2020, just for letting him go in free agency.

It's really a no-downside play. Green Bay gets a 4th rounder in 2019 instead of in 2020 (compensatory if they didn't resign him).

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

If he comes in and helps lead us to a playoff win or so , I would not rule out the possibility of keeping him and DJ both.

I like the trade but I think it is more important than we realize. To me, it shows Jay you better win this year.

Re: Redskins trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

According to Keim, Nicholson is injured and Redskins aren't sure how severe it is. Redskins wanted good back up plan so they got Dix. Smart move..
