Don't you just hate it when you're simply minding your own business, enjoying a nice scoot, and end up scooting right into a potentially very dangerous situation featuring wild animals? Ha Ha Clinton-Dix hates that:
Celebrities are just like us! Anyone who says that they'd react any differently has 1: clearly never seen a bear and 2: is a big, huge, gigantic liar. I've seen one wild bear in my life – while I was inside a house, far away – and still found myself wondering just how safe these 'walls' and 'doors' really were.
It bears (verb) the question: maybe the bears (animal) were looking for some of his game-worn Bears (human) stuff that he won't be needing anymore? This dumb sentence was brought to you by the word bears.
Bears (animal): don't scoot near them! Let them waddle their adorable little bear cubs (a bonus Chicago Sports reference because the bit never stops) through garages in peace.
The Bears took the first step in addressing their concerns at safety on Friday morning, bringing Deon Bush back on a one-year deal:
Bush was a fourth-round pick out of the University of Miami in 2016, and has seen his role on defense and special teams grow with each season. He appeared in 11 games (starting six) during his rookie season, 13 the next year, and 15 in each season since. Through the first 54 games of his career, Bush has started eight while logging 37 solo tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
The move comes only hours after last year's starting strong safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears very may well go into training camp with Bush as the presumptive starter next to Eddie Jackson – who the team extended earlier this offseason. With the secondary still being a position of need for GM Ryan Pace, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Bears take a safety early in the draft and go into camp with a competition.
The move also points to a philsophical change at the position, to Jackson's benefit:
On Thursday evening, football representation agency Sports Trust Advisors announced that former Bears safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix would be signing with the Dallas Cowboys.
Cowboys writer Clarence Hill Jr., reported that Clinton-Dix's contract would be a one-year deal for $4 million, with over half of it being guaranteed.
Clinton-Dix played in all 16 games for the Bears last season, collecting 2 interceptions, 78 combined tackles, and 1 defensive touchdown. Clinton-Dix will help improve a Dallas defense that has lost several starters but was coming off of a season in which they ranked just outside the top-10 in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game.
