He was decent with the Bears a couple years back, but he couldn’t even make the Cowboys final roster last year on a truly abysmal defense.  Maybe it was a scheme problem, who knows.  He’s still pretty young so I’m glad we’re giving him a shot.  

 

Thanks. I'm glad he's trying out. If he is consistent with what he's done in the past, he should be an upgrade.

I'd add that everyone looked bad for the Cowboys last year. They were epicly bad on on defense. I don't have a lot of faith in HaHa here, but I don't think you can glean much about anyone who played for the Cowboys last year on defense.

Technically he didn't "look bad" on the Cowboys defense last year.

He didn't make the team.

As has been said in this thread and quite a bit before....don't get too hung up on FS vs SS. There's few differentiations between the two and responsibilities are pretty much the same.*

*In many defenses these days not related to Ron Rivera

I found one article that kind of speaks on Haha's cut/release from the cowboys. Seems they favored Xavier Woods and Darian Thompson. Seems as if cutting him gave them more options. They don't mention anything about poor play but they do mention that his first-team reps were taken over by Darian and there was high praise for Darian from Mike McCarthy.

Regardless, it is nothing more than a try-out. It could be looked at as a good sign that Rhule is looking under every rock and weighing all options. Keep trying out guys and hopefully find a steal that fits our scheme to develop or a vet that does that while building our young guys.

Yeah, I'm definitely not opposed to bringing him in for a tryout. I'd prefer Hooker, but I'll take what I can get.

If the team signs Ha Ha Clinton-Dix following his tryout, he’ll likely play a rotational role at safety while also serving as a mentor to younger DBs like Troy Pride, Jr. and first-round pick Jaycee Horn.

Where in that does is states “free safety”?

Don't worry about the whole FS thing.  He's a safety. That's all that matters. There's no real difference between the two.
