The Latest: Redskins get safety Clinton-Dix from Packers

October 30, 2018 - 4:51 pm

The Latest on moves at the NFL trade deadline (all times Eastern):

4:35 p.m.

The Washington Redskins have acquired safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from the Green Bay Packers for a fourth-round draft pick.

Clinton-Dix, who can become a free agent after this season, joins D.J. Swearinger to give the NFC East-leading Redskins (5-2) a pair of veteran safeties.

Second-year player Montae Nicholson has been starting alongside Swearinger.

Clinton-Dix was drafted out of Alabama in the first round in 2014 by the Packers and has appeared in all 71 games since, starting 65.

He has 14 interceptions, including three this season for Green Bay (3-3-1).

The slumping Jacksonville Jaguars have traded Dante Fowler to the undefeated Los Angeles Rams just before the NFL trading deadline.

The move gives the Rams an even more formidable front that already features Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers.

The Jaguars swapped the 2015 first-round pick for a third-round draft pick in 2019 and a fifth-rounder in 2020, decent compensation for a backup who would have become a free agent at the end of the season.

Fowler was the third overall selection in 2015. He has two sacks in seven games while playing limited snaps. He was suspended for the regular-season opener because of an arrest in 2017 and was suspended by the team for a week during training camp over a post-practice fight.

The Green Bay Packers have traded running back and kick returner Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens for a seventh-round draft choice.

Montgomery is moving on two days after fumbling a kickoff return with about two minutes left in a 29-27 loss to the Los Angeles Rams after being told by coaches to take a touchback if the kick went into the end zone. The turnover cost the Packers a chance to drive for a potential game-winning score.

The Ravens released linebacker Albert McClellan to make room.

John Elway says the trade of Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans is good for the Denver Broncos and for Thomas.

The move not only clears a $15 million salary cap hit from Denver's books next year, but it clears the way for young receivers to get more playing time, especially rookie Courtland Sutton but also rookie DaeSean Hamilton and second-year pro Tim Patrick.

Plus, Elway says, Thomas is going to a contender. The Texans lead the AFC South after following their 0-3 start with five consecutive victories.

The Broncos are 3-5 after getting swept by the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired wide receiver Golden Tate from the Detroit Lions for a third-round draft pick next year.

Tate has 44 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns this season. He joins Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews, giving Carson Wentz another target.

Tate wrote on Twitter: "It's been real DETROIT! I'll love ya forever. Philly Philly let's get it!!"

The 30-year-old Tate averaged 93 catches, 1,056 yards receiving and five TDs the past four seasons in Detroit. He went to the Pro Bowl after the 2014 season. Tate spent his first four seasons with Seattle.

The defending Super Bowl champions Eagles are 4-4 and have a bye this week.

___

1:08 p.m.

The Denver Broncos traded nine-year veteran Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans.

Thomas won't have to wait long to play his old team — the Texans (5-3) visit the Broncos (3-5) this weekend.

The Broncos will also send a 2019 seventh-rounder to Houston and will receive fourth and seventh-round picks in the 2019 draft.

The Texans found themselves thin at wide receiver when they lost Will Fuller for the season to a torn knee ligament and have had trouble keeping rookie Keke Coutee on the field.

In a conference call with Denver media on Tuesday, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he knew nothing of the trade talks for Thomas, saying, "I've been in meetings all day game planning." Besides, he added, that's general manager Brian Gaine's department, not his.
