Another contender in the NFC East has made a big move on the day of the NFL trade deadline.

The Washington Redskins have acquired safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in a trade with the Green Bay Packers. The news was first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL.com and the NFL Network.

The Packers will receive a fourth-round draft pick from the Redskins in the deal.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter previously reported that the Philadelphia Eagles traded a third-round draft pick to the Detroit Lions in exchange for wide receiver Golden Tate.

Earlier in the day, Schefter reported that the Houston Texans acquired wide receiver Demariyus Thomas from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a mid-round draft pick.

Last week, the Dallas Cowboys sent a first-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for wide receiver Amari Cooper.

The move should help head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott improve the team’s offense.

Although, many fans were not thrilled with owner and general manager Jerry Jones for paying such a steep price in the deal.

At 3-4, the Cowboys occupy third place in the NFC East. The 4-4 Eagles currently reside in second place.

The Redskins currently control first place in the division with a 5-2 record.
