The first-round pick from the 2014 NFL Draft is set to make $1.55 million in 2017 before his 2018 option kicks in at roughly $5.9 million. The decision was made after Clinton-Dix recorded a career-best five interceptions in 2016 and was selected to his first career Pro Bowl.
Derek Sherrod, Nick Perry, and Datone Jones all previous had their fifth-year options declined by Green Bay, and only Perry proved he was worth keeping after his contract year. The 2011 collective bargaining agreement gives all first-round draft picks a guaranteed four-year contract with a club option for the fifth year. Salaries are based on where the player is selected within the round.
