WASHINGTON– The Redskins gave the team’s secondary a boost before the NFL’s Trade Deadline on Tuesday.

The team acquired S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from the Green Bay Packers for a fourth round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Clinton-Dix, 25,  was a former first round pick out of Alabama, and was a Pro Bowler in 2016.

Set to become a free agent at season’s end, Green Bay didn’t want to lose Clinton-Dix to free agency without getting draft pick compensation.

Now, Clinton-Dix is expected to secure a starting spot in the Redskins’ secondary as the team continues its playoff chase.
