Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – S, Bears (Theon Greyjoy)

Theon Greyjoy is the last of Balon Greyjoy’s living sons. His two older brothers died during his father’s failed rebellion. He was given to Eddard “Ned” Stark as a form of collateral to ensure his father, Balon keeps his nose clean. Ned actually treats Theon quite well as a ward of Winterfell and so do most of the Stark children. This is why Theon pledges his loyalty to Robb Stark, the oldest of the Stark boys.

Eventually, Theon betrays this pledge and proves to be an enemy of the Starks. However, more betrayal takes place and Theon loses his foothold in the North rather quickly. Despite being a ward, Theon is very proud of his heritage as the son of Balon, proclaimed King of the Iron Islands. He has a mouth on him and can come across as stupidly arrogant at times.

One thing viewers will notice quickly though is that Theon seems to have a good heart. Something he picked up from Ned Stark no less. Could a redemption story be in young Theon’s future? Well, I am not sharing any of that as this is supposed to be basically spoiler free remember.

Now, let us take a look at Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Clinton-Dix was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2014. He is a ball hawk who sometimes finds himself out of position due to his aggressiveness. He also likes to run his mouth a little from time-to-time. The Packers traded him to the Redskins in 2018, but he signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears this offseason.

Are you picking up on why Clinton-Dix is clearly Theon yet? Like Theon, Clinton-Dix has some swagger but can be too aggressive at times. Also like Theon, he is trying to write his redemption story by coming back to the NFC North and taking on those (the Packers) who did not believe in him. Personally, I think he outplays Adrian Amos in 2019 and redeems himself quite nicely.
