SAFETY [Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix] wants the Eagles to move up to get him. His exact words were: “I told him to tell them to come get me, please,” Clinton-Dix said Wednesday, per CSN Philly. “Whatever it takes.”
That’s an interesting statement. Come get me please. It sounds like he knows he won’t slide to us, which says he knows he’s getting Drafted early regardless.
But he wants to be here.
I’m a huge fan of moving up to grab [Anthony Barr], but if we elect to get this Clinton-Dix instead, at least we know he personally wants to be an Eagle.
I played semi-pro for 3 years and I know what it means to get to pick the symbol on your helmet. I know the pride it inspired in me to do that logo justice. I remember pushing myself, shattering old limits, and the rapid rate I improved at as a result.
If we don’t get Barr, then we need to lay hands on Clinton-Dix, because there is NO substitute for commitment when a man had truly made it in his heart.
This I know first-hand.
