GREEN BAY, Wis. - As long as Aaron Rodgers is on the team, the Packers will always be known for their offense. This year, however, it's the defense that's showing the biggest signs of improvement. One player the Green and Gold expect big things out of is forth year safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
"I look to improve on a lot of things this year," Clinton-Dix said. "Just continue to be consistent and continue to make plays."
All five of Clinton-Dix' interceptions last season came from week 9 on. The Packers hope he will pick up this season right where he left off.
"He has a presence," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. "His personality is becoming a bigger part of our football club."
Aaron Rodgers said last week that he sees an opportunity for a handful of players to step into leadership roles this season, Clinton-Dix being one of them.
"I am who I am, I let my name speak for itself and I'm going to continue to hold myself to a high standard," Clinton-Dix said.
As if playing football wasn't enough, Ha Ha is also on track to finish his education with a degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Alabama. A fitting major for a man expected to deliver justice on the gridiron all season long.
