Clinton-Dix agreed to a contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Clinton-Dix will help fill the void left by the departed Jeff Heath and should step in as a starter at safety alongside Xavier Woods. The seventh-year veteran had his worst statistical year of his career in 2019, recording only 78 tackles and two interceptions in a full 16-game campaign. Clinton-Dix has proven his talent as an open-field player over the course of his career, however, and could have a resurgent year in Dallas.
Clinton-Dix posted four stops in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he concluded the campaign with 78 tackles, three interceptions and a touchdown.
During his seven-year career, this is the fifth time that Clinton-Dix has logged a full season, but among those seasons, this was his least productive campaign. He's now an unrestricted free agent, and, based on his experience, he should be able to land a starting job, and he'll likely continue to be a middling IDP option.
Clinton-Dix notched seven tackles while recovering a fumble in the Bears' 17-7 loss to the Rams on Sunday.
Clinton-Dix posted his second-highest tackle total of the season, and he's averaging 5.1 stops on the campaign. Aside from a two-interception performance in Week 3, he's been unable to provide the big-play upside that fantasy owners were hoping for when he signed with the Bears. Consider him a middling IDP option based on his solid tackle numbers.
Clinton-Dix posted six tackles in the Bears' 20-13 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Clinton-Dix reached the six-tackle mark for just the third time all season, though he's averaging five stops per game. But aside from his two-interception game in Week 3, he's yet to come up with a takeaway since, making him a steady but unspectacular fantasy option.
Clinton-Dix had two interceptions, including a pick-six, to go with nine tackles in Chicago's 31-15 win over Washington on Monday.
Facing his former team, Clinton-Dix collected an overthrow from Case Keenum and took it to the house to give the Bears a lead they'd never relinquish. Although that would have been plenty for IDP owners, he was all over the field in a game in which Keenum was forced to throw 43 times, leading to one of the best games of Clinton-Dix's career. As expected, he's a player who has volatility in his weekly fantasy performances, but his upside makes him a player who can be best used when streaming defensive backs.
Clinton-Dix wasn't listed on the Bears' injury report Monday.
Clinton-Dix figures to slot in as the starting strong safety in Chicago's defense. The 26-year-old started in 16 games last season -- seven with Green Bay and nine with Washington -- logging 93 tackles, two forced fumbles and three interceptions.
Clinton-Dix was rested during the Bears' 27-17 win over the Colts on Saturday.
Clinton-Dix picked off at least three passes in three of the last four years, so he has upside. Now with an excellent defense that can pressure quarterbacks, he could come up with a big fantasy season and be a good player to gamble on if the cost isn't too high.
Clinton-Dix (knee) was removed from the PUP list Tuesday morning, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Signed to a one-year contract this offseason, Clinton-Dix is expected to replace Adrian Amos (Packers) as the starting strong safety in a fearsome Bears defense. A knee sprain from June minicamp isn't likely to prevent Clinton-Dix from suiting up for Week 1. He may be eased into practice over the next couple weeks.
Clinton-Dix (knee) has been officially placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Clinton-Dix is still recovering from a sprained knee he suffered during minicamp, but it shouldn't come as too much of a concern for the Bears. General manager Ryan Pace noted the injury was minor, as the team is exercising extreme caution to begin the preseason. Until the veteran safety returns, look for Deandre Houston-Carson and Deon Bush to see some extra reps with the first-team defense.
Clinton-Dix (knee) is expected to open up training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Clinton-Dix is signing a one-year contract with the Bears, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
It sounds like the Redskins tried to re-sign Clinton-Dix, but to no avail, and it's now apparent the difference-making safety will get a short-term opportunity to increase his market value before returning to free agency in 2020. In Chicago, Clinton-Dix should slot right in at safety next to former Alabama teammate and 2018 first-team All-Pro safety Eddie Jackson. In that role last season, Adrian Amos totaled 73 tackles and nine pass breakups.
Clinton-Dix had 13 tackles (11 solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Texans.

The Packers traded Clinton-Dix to the Redskins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
While his tackle count was off the pace of the first four seasons of his career (27 in seven games), Clinton-Dix picked off three passes, marking his third straight campaign with at least that number. He'll join a secondary with fair starters in D.J. Swearinger and Montae Nicholson, likely replacing the latter as the starter at strong safety.
Clinton-Dix posted two tackles (both solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Clinton-Dix's two tackles represented his lowest output of the season, but his sack was his first of the year. He hasn't had more than 0.5 sacks in a season since 2015, when he had three. He'll look to maintain his strong play as the Packers aim to get back above .500 next week against the 49ers.
Clinton-Dix recorded four tackles (all solo) and an interception in Sunday's 22-0 win over Buffalo.
Clinton-Dix has been red-hot to start the season, equaling his interception total from all of 2017 in just four games.

Clinton-Dix will look to continue his run of success against Matthew Stafford and the Lions' offense in Week 5.
Clinton-Dix recorded five tackles (two solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
Clinon-Dix has now recorded interceptions in back-to-back weeks and is just one shy of equaling his 2017 total. Unlike last week -- when he was the beneficiary of a tipped pass -- Clinton-Dix flashed his coverage skills by reading a throw from Alex Smith and coming down with it. He'll look to maintain the strong play against the Bills and rookie quarterback Josh Allen in Week 4.
Clinton-Dix recorded three tackles (all solo) and an interception in Sunday's 29-29 tie against Minnesota.
Clinton-Dix's three tackles aren't overly impressive, but he made up for it by nabbing an interception in the final minutes of the fourth quarter that nearly iced the game for Green Bay. Looking ahead, the Packers defense will face its first road test of the season as the team heads to Washington to take on the Redskins in Week 3.
Clinton-Dix recorded seven tackles, all solo, in Sunday's 24-23 win over Chicago.

Clinton-Dix made three solo tackles in the Packers' third exhibition contest Friday.
Clinton-Dix missed some OTA action while tending to a personal matter, but he has participated in all of training camp and each of the Packers' three preseason games thus far. Clinton-Dix will be the Packers' starting free safety in Week 1.
