NFL free agency doesn’t officially start until Wed March 17th, but the Las Vegas Raiders are getting an early start by meeting with released veterans.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Raiders recently met with former Bears safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

However, Bouye left without a contract.
The Raiders could look to revisit with him down the line after surveying all their options.
Clinton-Dix had a short stint with the Dallas Cowboys after signing with them in 2020, but was released before the first week of the season.
The Raiders showed interest last year in him before he signed with the Cowboys.
In his career, he has started in 90 games and has 16 int’s.
A known issue with Clinton-Dix is his tackling, but this deficiency could be hidden in Gus Bradley’s defense where sometimes he would be lined up 20-25 yards from the line of scrimmage.
Clinton-Dix could prove to be a short-term solution for the Raiders at the free safety position.
If they were to sign him, they would likely still look for a long-term solution in free agency or the draft which is held April 29th – May 1st.
