The Chicago Bears are going all Crimson Tide on the back end of their defense for the 2019 National Football League season.

For the Bears, signing Clinton-Dix fills a void left behind by Adrian Amos, who signed a four-year deal with the Packers earlier this week.

Clinton-Dix, 26, spent the final nine games last season with the Washington Redskins after he was acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers.

On Oct. 30, Green Bay sent Clinton-Dix to the Washington Redskins seven games into the 2018 season for a fourth-round draft choice. The NFL Network, which first reported the move, said it's a one-year deal for $3.5 million.

Clinton-Dix will take the place of Amos, whose signing with the Packers was made official Thursday.

Per Garafolo, Clinton-Dix had "more on the table elsewhere".

Now, Clinton-Dix will join his second new team in the span of six months.

In 84 career games, Clinton-Dix has recorded 456 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 14 interceptions. During the 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons, Clinton-Dix hardly came off the field for the Packers' defense.

The Redskins were believed to have wanted Clinton-Dix to return.

The opportunity to pair up with former Alabama teammate Eddie Jackson in the Bears' secondary was one he didn't want to pass up.
