Reports: Packers Exercise Option To Keep Clinton Dix

(Green Bay, WI)  —  Ha Ha Clinton Dix has become the first Green Bay Packer to have the option year picked up on his rookie contract. Media reports say the Packers exercised the fifth year option on Clinton Dix’s contract Monday, and it gives him close to six-million dollars next year, four times his salary for this fall. Clinton Dix made his first Pro Bowl last year after he tied with Landon Collins of the New York Giants with the most interceptions by a safety in the regular season with five. The Packers had until Wednesday to decide whether to add a fifth year to the Clinton Dix contract. The option became part of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement in 2011, and the Packers declined it for Derek Sherrod, Nick Perry, and Datone Jones, although Perry was given a one year deal for 2016 and an extension earlier in the offseason.
