Packers' Ha Ha Clinton-Dix wants to make Jets regret not drafting him
Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix said he wants to make the Jets regret not drafting him when the teams play this Sunday, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
The Jets selected safety Calvin Pryor with the No. 18 pick in the 2014 draft and Clinton-Dix went three picks later to the Packers.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said he "took the guy who will knock your face in." Clinton-Dix, who played at Alabama, said Pryor benefited from playing at Louisville.
"I'm not afraid to do that at all," Clinton-Dix said. "And you're going to continue to see that out of me. If that's what they thought, hey, that's on him. I'm going to show him.
"It is what it is," he said. "I can't take anything away from Pryor — that's my boy. He's a hell of a hitter. He does his thing. It was the same thing in college. He had the ability to roam around. I had to play in a scheme."
Clinton-Dix came off the bench had five tackles and one pass defensed in the Packers' season-opening loss to the Seahawks. Pryor started for the Jets and had four tackles in their win against the Raiders.
The Jets and Packers play on Sunday in Green Bay at 4:25 p.m.
