Yeah, hard to argue that’s anything other than good value.

Helluva deal by Pace. Get him on the one year show me what you got deal. You know he is going to ball out looking for the BIGGER deal in 2020. Says a lot the guy wants to sign for less (I am always the guy harping on pros chasing the $$).

Like this shit a lot.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix gets $3.5 million on his one-year deal from the #Bears, source says. He had more on the table elsewhere but it sounds like he wanted to join that Chicago defense and be reunited with his Alabama teammate Eddie Jackson.

Oh wow. When is the last time a FA actually took less money specifically because he wanted to play for the Bears. I don't even know what this feels like right now.


Been a long time right? I'm 49 years old and maybe a handful of years when they had a great D or back in the day maybe.

Him and Jackson being close and from the same school and system back then I'm sure they have a little chemistry just from playing for that team. It will be real interesting to see how they gel together. A one year prove it deal works.

Agreed mmc..
It's a smart move for both sides.

Bears buy themselves another year of evaulating/coaching Bush or drafting his replacement = Haha gets to play with his old teammate & pad his stats for his next big payday contract!

I get 1 of the concerns is less than stellar tackling, I would say to that:
1) used to be a prob for Kyle Fuller (can be coached)
2) DB's who play for this front 7 need to know how to Catch INTs & deflect passes.

DB's who excel at tackling are great for teams who can't crush a QB.

The scared to go across the middle mantra does not play big in the new NFL. That type of shit draws flags. The days of Lott, Todd Bell, and the like is really gone. I will take 2 ball hawks with a kick ass front 7 any day in the New NFL.

Pretty happy with this. We're firmly in our window now so short term deals for a discount make lots of sense. This defence is ripe for ring chasers and contract chasers looking to pad some stats.

Also agree with those a little worried at having two marginal tacklers at safety but also those who've said tackling can be taught, I really hope our coaches are preaching solid technique over big shots.

Another good signing! Only down side is the bears will be back in the same position next season.

I'm guessing that HaHa wanted to play with Eddie Jackson, but especially wanted to make sure he played the Packers twice this season.


This. So much this.

Great value and Dix will be motivated to play well given that he's only on a 1 year deal (whether that's with the Bears or somewhere else in 2020).

Teams are putting more emphasis on coverage ability these days even in their safeties. Sure, tackling is going to be an issue for both of them but I think the pairing of the two in general will outweigh their perceived weakness of tackling.
