Ha Ha Clinton-Dix tries to trash talk Kenny Golladay after savage stiff arm

The Packers safety is getting burned both on and off the field.

It’s not often a player in any sport gets to posterize two players on one play, but Kenny Golladay did just that early in Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. First, he elevated over Packers cornerback Josh Jackson on a jump-ball throw from Matthew Stafford.

But Golladay wasn’t done. After coming down with the catch, Golladay wanted some YAC, and after blowing by Jackson, and Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was the next closest defender. He got a mouthful of Golladay’s hand for his efforts.

But the disrespect didn’t stop there. The normally quiet Kenny Golladay went to social media, and posted this savage picture to Instagram.

Point made...

“Point made...,” Golladay’s simple caption read.

Of course, this being social media, plenty of people felt the need to tag Clinton-Dix in the post, and the Packers safety ended up seeing it and responding to it. Hat tip to Twitter user @_nickolah for tipping us off to this:

That’s some bold words from Clinton-Dix after getting worked pretty hard by Golladay on Sunday. Kenny doesn’t really take the bait and just invites him to their next game: Week 17 in Lambeau.

That’s a long time from now, but it will be interesting to see if the two exchange words in a game that could be huge for the both of them.
