The Chicago Bears made a swap at the safety position during the offseason.
The team lost Adrian Amos to free agency as he walked to join the Green Bay Packers, however they replaced him with a former Packer in veteran Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
During the Bears 100th Celebration Weekend, the swap was discussed and we learned something pretty interesting.
Bears' director of player personnel Josh Lucas made a pretty big revelation.
Lucas said the Bears main focus during the offseason was adding Buster Skrine, Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson and adding Clinton-Dix afterwards was "icing on the cake".
Not only was he "icing on the cake", Lucas revealed that the Bears had given Clinton-Dix a better grade than Amos over the last four years.
Bears director of player personnel Josh Lucas described the signing of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix as icing on the cake in free agency - Skrine, Patterson and Davis were the top 3 targets, and probably more realistic. The Bears had consistently given Ha Ha a higher grade than Adrian Amos.
