Ha Ha Clinton-Dix jokingly challenges Eddie Lacy with opener in mind

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Eddie Lacy practiced against each other the last three years as Green Bay Packers teammates, but they never quite got to hit each other as hard as they would in a game.

But now the hard-hitting Pro Bowl safety and the bruising running back will face off without limitations when Clinton-Dix and the Packers open the regular season against Lacy’s new team, the Seattle Seahawks.

Lacy signed as a free agent with the Seahawks last month.

On Tuesday, we got the first glimpse of how competitive -- and how much fun -- the Clinton-Dix vs. Lacy matchup will be.

It started with a tweet from Lacy with a picture of him in one of his new Seahawks shirts, and it didn’t take Clinton-Dix long to respond with a challenge.

From there, Lacy essentially said bring it on.

And then Clinton-Dix essentially made a peace offering.

Perhaps Lacy could return to Green Bay next year. After all, he signed only a one-year deal with the Seahawks. But for now, it's Packers vs. Seahawks -- and Clinton-Dix against Lacy -- in Week 1 at Lambeau Field.
