Packers trade Clinton-Dix to Redskins, Montgomery to Ravens for picks

To summarize, the Packers" still-susceptible pass "D' willingly gave up one of its anchors, a former first-round pick under the Ted Thompson regime, to a club it could be competing with for a wild-card berth for a future Day 3 pick. It's possible the Packers don't predict a noticeable dropoff from Clinton-Dix to the other options available on the roster.

Just ahead of the deadline, the Packers indeed made a deal involving their starting free safety.

The Green Bay Packers also traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the Redskins for a 4th round draft pick, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. But without Clinton-Dix, a starter, the Packers are now left with Kentrell Brice, Jermaine Whitehead and Josh Jones.

One final note: The Packers cleared $3.5 million off the cap in 2018 by dealing Clinton-Dix and Ty Montgomery, pushing the team's cap space to about $10.5 million.

The safety position has been an issue this season.

That's some pretty incredible value for a fourth-round pick, especially when you consider that the Eagles' current starting free safety, Avonte Maddox, was also selected using a fourth-round pick. With depth at cornerback after signing Bashaud Breeland, the Packers could move Tramon Williams to safety. So will defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. It seems likely Green Bay didn't want to pay him after this season, as he remains in a contract year.

Washington acquired Clinton-Dix for a 2019 fourth-round draft pick. Instead of taking a knee like he was reportedly told to do, he ran it out - fumbling the ball and the game away. Green Bay ranks in the top five in the National Football League in passing defense this season with just 221.7 yards allowed through the air per game, so it's somewhat surprising that they are making a significant change to their secondary.
