Packers' Ha Ha Clinton-Dix expects to play elsewhere next season

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix doesna€™t know what the future holds, but he doesna€™t expect it to have him in Green Bay.

At least, thata€™s the approach the fifth-year safety is taking as he and the up-and-down Packers get ready for Monday nighta€™s game against the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field.

a€œRight now, Ia€™m playing each and every game like ita€™s my last. I dona€™t think Ia€™m going to be here next year,a€ Clinton-Dix said Monday, one day after the Packers fell to 2-2-1 with a loss at Detroit. a€œThata€™s how I look at it. I just (have to) be honest with myself. Youa€™ve got to play it game-by-game. Whether wea€™re losing by 60 points, youa€™ve got to go out there and perform. This is my biggest interview of my career. So Ia€™ve got to perform, regardless of what the record says.a€

Clinton-Dix, the Packersa€™ 2014 first-round pick and a 2016 Pro Bowl selection, is playing on a fifth-year option, which the Packers exercised following his Pro Bowl season after not doing so with their 2011 (Derek Sherrod), 2012 (Nick Perry) or 2013 (Datone Jones) first-rounders. The option is paying him a guaranteed $5.957 million this season, but because he was hoping to get a long-term contract extension, he did not take part in the teama€™s voluntary organized team activity practices this spring.

Clinton-Dix enters Mondaya€™s game tied for the NFL lead in interceptions (three), matching his total from last season. Hea€™s tied for second on the team in tackles (31) and also has a sack and four pass break-ups playing in defensive coordinator Mike Pettinea€™s new scheme. As a whole, the Packers enter the week ranked fourth in total defense (313.8 yards per game) and tied for 13th in scoring defense (22.8 points per game) after some inconsistent play the first five weeks.

Nevertheless, Clinton-Dix said he still believes the defense can be a top-flight unit once players get healthy and they start to feel more comfortable in the scheme.
