There’s a reason why Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has been in the NFL for six seasons and continues to get the respect of his peers and fans. He’s racked up 522 tackles, 5.5 sacks,16 picks, and 33 pass breakups. He’s still the same hardworking guy that he was when he entered the league as a first-round selection in 2017.
He adds elite depth to the Eagles’ safety position or he can function well as a starter if Rodney McLeod does, indeed, move on, but the question is will Philly be interested? He figures to command a high price tag.
Devin McCourty is a true professional that does everything the right way. He’ll turn 33 years of age in August, and he’s talked about retirement before. That thought could creep in his mind again before the season even begins.
After all, after three Super Bowl victories, two Pro Bowl appearances (2010, 2016), three Second-team All-Pro nods (2010, 2013, 2016), and 772 tackles, why would he consider going anywhere else if this is, indeed, the end of the line for him with that dynasty within a dynasty? Maybe you’ve heard of them. They’re called the New England Patriots.
It just feels like, after all of that success, there’s nowhere to go but down. March 16th update: He’s been re-signed by the New England Patriots for 2 years at a total of $23 million).
