DJ Swearinger and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix have it in common: They are both really good, really good at safety this season.
But here’s something else The two DB groups and current teammates share: An appreciation for Sean Taylor.
Redskin fans know Swearing’s love for Skins legend. Among other things, he clicks his face mask as Taylor used to gameday and wears the 36-digit Taylor bar as a rookie – as a way to honor him.
It turns out that Clinton-Dix is a massive fan of Washington’s beloved defender, too.
In a 2014 interview with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, he declared that if he could have dinner with someone, Taylor would be his choice.
“He was my inspiration,” said Clinton-Dix. “I watched him, I idolized him, he’s a heck of a player. He was an animal. I liked him a lot. To see him go at such a young age, it was sad for me that he was mine brother or something. And I did not even know him. “
When he arrived in DC, Clinton-Dix has to find a new song to rock; Taylor 21 is demarcated these days.
Playing for Taylor’s old squad will surely be cool for him. And now both he and Swearinger can show their respect for All-Pro by locking things down in Redskins secondary for the rest of the season and maybe beyond.  MORE REDSKINS NEWS
