Packers trade Clinton-Dix to Redskins, Montgomery to Ravens


The Green Bay Packers traded safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins and running back Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens before Tuesday's deadline.

Washington will send Green Bay a fourth-round pick for Clinton-Dix, according to multiple reports. The Ravens, who announced the acquisition of Montgomery and the release of linebacker Albert McClellan to clear a roster spot, will reportedly trade the Packers a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the running back.

Clinton-Dix, who turns 26 in December, is in the fifth-year option of his rookie deal after the Packers took him 21st overall in the 2014 draft. He had indicated earlier this year he didn't anticipate returning to the team when he hits free agency in March 2019.

Clinton-Dix has three interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble in seven games this season. He did not miss a game in four-plus seasons with the Packers, totaling 390 tackles, 14 interceptions and 25 passes defensed.

"Much love y'all [cheese emoji]," Clinton-Dix tweeted shortly before the news broke.

Washington has started D.J. Swearinger (four interceptions this season) and Montae Nicholson at safety for all seven games this season. Swearinger hasn't missed a snap, while Nicholson has played all but five. No other safety has played more than 24 snaps.

Montgomery's trade comes two days after he lost a fumble on a kickoff return with two minutes left in regulation and the Packers trailing the Los Angeles Rams, 29-27. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Montgomery was supposed to take a touchback if the kickoff reached the end zone. The Packers did not get the ball back, as the Rams ran out the clock.

Montgomery said on the radio Monday that he and his family received death threats following the loss.

The 24-year-old has 26 carries for 105 yards and a score plus 15 catches for 170 yards in seven games this season. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract after Green Bay took him in the third round in 2015.

A wide receiver coming out of college, Montgomery transitioned to running back during the 2016 season and stayed there full time entering 2017. He has 849 rushing yards (4.8 average) and 827 receiving yards (8.5 average) with 10 total touchdowns through 36 games (14 starts).

McClellan, 32, was released by the Ravens at final cuts but re-signed in September after an injury to C.J. Mosley. After starting one game, he returned to a reserve role when Mosley returned and has three tackles in six games this year.
