Rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton Dix agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers on May 29. 

This was confirmed by Tom Silverstein of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"Rookie holdouts are a thing of the past in the NFL and so it comes as no surprise that the Packers were able to reach terms with first-round pick, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, on a new contract. 

"An NFL source said Thursday afternoon that the two sides had agreed to a deal with former Alabama safety, who has been taking part in organized team activities with the rest of the club. 

"Financial terms weren't available, but first-round picks all sign four-year deals and the club has the option of including a fifth-year option. In order to add the fifth year, the team must exercise the option before the player begins his fourth season. 

"Last year, the 21st pick, Cincinnati tight end Tyler Eifert, signed a four-year $8.256 million deal that included a $4.38 million signing bonus. Rookie deals have been relatively flat compared to a year ago, so Clinton-Dix's deal shouldn't be far off from Eifert's. 

"Clinton-Dix joins third-round pick Khyri Thornton, fourth-round pick Carl Bradford, fifth-round pick Corey Linsley, fifth-round pick Jared Abbrederis, sixth-round pick Demetri Goodson and seventh-round pick Jeff Janis as those who have signed their rookie deals. 

"Still unsigned are second-round pick Davante Adams and third-round pick Richard Rodgers."

NFL.com's Kevin Patra wrote more about the financial terms of the deal, citing his colleague, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. 

"The safety will make $8,338,501 over four years, with a $4,384,364 signing bonus, Rapoport added. As with all first-round picks, Clinton-Dix has a four-year deal with a non-negotiable fifth-year club option. 

"With the safety position one of the Packers' top needs entering the draft, general manager Ted Thompson saw the former Alabama All-American fall in his lap at No. 21 overall. 

"The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Clinton-Dix has reportedly been taking second-team reps early in OTAs behind Morgan Burnett and Micah Hyde. It's typical for a team to slow-play their rookies' participation in the starting lineup. 

"However, in 'Around The League's' projected starters series, Gregg Rosenthal noted that Clinton-Dix should begin the season as a starter. 

"With a talent like Clinton-Dix patrolling the center field and other additions plugging big holes on the Packers' defense, there is no doubt Green Bay will be a favorite choice to make a Super Bowl run in 2014."
