New Washington Redskins safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix says he will "be suited up this weekend" to play for the NFC East leaders, whether it's on defense or special teams.
No, roughly the week after the Dallas Cowboys flipped their first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for Amari Cooper, the Washington Redskins have also made a deal for a potential playoff push, sending a fourth-round pick to the Green Bay Packers for safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Packers will get a 7th round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. In addition to trading away Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens, the Packers traded Pro Bowl safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins just moments before the trade deadline ended.
So right away, there's uncertainty about future compensation.

The water bus system has been closed by transport officials due to the emergency although it will still run to outlying islands. Others, including tourists, donned thigh-high wellies or took off their shoes to wade through the water.
The Packers downgraded substantially at free safety by parting with Clinton-Dix, to Jermaine Whitehead. Gutekunst will have a plan.
Instead of gambling with those factors, Gutekunst took the sure thing - an unconditional fourth-round pick in next year's draft. The Packers will be flush with cap space next year, especially once Randall Cobb and Clay Matthews come off the books, making it possible Gutekunst will be one of the most aggressive players on the open market.
Again, all it would take is a big signing or two to cancel out Clinton-Dix's departure.
The safety position has been an issue this season. Last year's starters, Clinton-Dix and Morgan Burnett, and now both no longer on the team.
