Ha Ha Clinton-Dix thinks he’ll be on a new team in 2019.
The 25-year-old safety is set to be a free agent after the Packers picked up his fifth-year option in May. He recently told the Wisconsin State Journal he does not expect to sign a new deal with Green Bay.
“Right now, I’m playing each and every game like it’s my last. I don’t think I’m going to be here next year,” Clinton-Dix said. “That’s how I look at it. I just (have to) be honest with myself.
“You’ve got to play it game by game. Whether we’re losing by 60 points, you’ve got to go out there and perform. This is my biggest interview of my career.”
Clinton-Dix has tallied 20 total tackles and three interceptions during the Packers’ 2-2-1 start to the season. He said the Packers defense will be hard to stop once it “gets rolling.”
“When guys are doing what they’re asked to do, we don’t look too bad out there,” Clinton-Dix said. “There are little mistakes we make, but other that, we’re all having fun out there and once we all get in a rhythm and start catching interceptions, it’s only going to bring us together.
“I’m actually having fun — regardless of what the record says — because of the defense and the way it is right now. We’re going to get better.”
Clinton-Dix was originally selected by the Packers with the 21st pick in the 2014 draft. He has registered 14 interceptions and 5 1/2 sacks in 69 career games.
Green Bay will face the 49ers in Week 6 action Monday.
