CelebNSports247.com reports that the Cowboys had agreed to terms on a one-year deal with veteran safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix late Thursday night.
According to DallasCowboys.com:
Officially speaking, nothing has been finalized. But if it goes through, this would easily be the Cowboys’ biggest move at the safety position in recent memory, as they have developed a well-earned reputation for overlooking the position.
The 27-year-old Clinton-Dix would be the most accomplished safety to suit up for the Cowboys in quite some time.

Ha Ha Clinton Dix History in NFL:
The six-year veteran has started 96 NFL games, collecting 522 tackles and 16 interceptions, making one Pro Bowl in that time span.
Mike McCarthy’s position as the Cowboys’ new head coach doesn’t feel like a coincidence. McCarthy was the head man in Green Bay when the Packers made Clinton-Dix, an All-American at Alabama, the No. 21 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Clinton-Dix was a regular starter for four full seasons in Green Bay, tallying 351 tackles and 14 of his 16 career interceptions. The Packers traded him to Washington for a fourth round pick in October of 2018, and he responded with 66 tackles in 10 games.
The Chicago Bears signed Clinton-Dix to a one-year, $5.5 million deal last spring. He started all 16 games at safety alongside Eddie Jackson. He made 78 tackles with five pass breakups and two interceptions, including the first pick-six of his career.
