I like this move (although curious to know why GB traded him mid last season). But a bit bemused at the references to him rekindling his Tide partnership with Jackson. Eddie was a freshman in 2013 and played in 7 games and started 4. On Oct 3 2013 Dix was suspended indefinitely but was reinstated after 2 games. On Dec 2 2013 he underwent arthroscopic knee meniscus surgery. Then he joined the draft as a junior.

Whilst they were clearly teammates for 1 season, it hardly constituted a legendary partnership, so by all means let's look forward to what they can accomplish together, but let's not overblow their common history.

Hard to know the real reason why any team lets a player go but I remember at the time they didn’t feel they could resign him...so the trade made sense. The Redskins were in a good position at the time, thinking they were playoff bound so the trade made sense for them too.

GB traded him because they didn't want to re-sign him to a multiyear deal.

Which is hilarious in the end with them signing Amos to four years and Clinton-Dix signing for one year with us....

I really like this signing, our team is significantly better after all of these free agency moves.

Dix and Amos are actually very similar in one aspect, they are not ideal center fielding safeties. People see Haha’s size and length and think he should play FS but he doesn’t have the speed to do it. Personally, I think that now he’s not going to be asked to be that guy on a consistent basis, like Amos, his play will improve.

On the flip side, people think because his size and length that he’s not physical, I disagree. He can come down and lay the wood.

Overall, he’s not Amos but he’s better then Bush. My hope is that now that he’s not forced into the FS role, he’ll be a better player. For the cost, it’s a great risk.

It doesn’t sound like Green Bay moved on from him because of his play or lack of leadership, sounds like he burned some bridges early with contract talks. Now, he’s motivated to earn that Landon Collins money which works well for us. Also, we keep Bush as our primary backup which gives us 3 good safeties.

For $3.5M, that's a steal. It's a win-win.

Had to laugh last night. Texted a "we signed Ha Ha for $3.5M" note to the Packer fan son and his response was, "that's pretty cheap for a low end starter". Who made a freaking Pro Bowl when he was playing for your team! LOL

Especially hilarious when he's the Bears 10th or 11th best starter on defense, but he was like the 3rd or 4th best starter on the Packers defense (and would probably be on most defenses).

$3.5 million is crazy. I knew this safety market was one not to overspend in but that's an amazing savings.

Last few days I saw a little of that anti-Pace sentiment showing up from closet meatballs just waiting for something bad to happen so they can scream "I told you so" and shout about how much better everything used to be...

Not so much of that with this signing! LOL
