Colts' Clayton Geathers: Sticking in Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geathers and the Colts reached agreement Wednesday on a one-year contract, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

Geathers averaged 7.4 tackles per appearance in 2018, but a four-week absence due to neck and head injuries brought his three-year total to 22 missed games. His medical history largely explains the failure to land a multi-year deal in free agency, as the 2015 fourth-round pick has been a solid starter when healthy. With fellow safety Malik Hooker often handling deep coverage responsibilities, Geathers should have plenty of tackle opportunities in 2019, assuming he retains the starting job at strong safety, an IDP-friendly gig.

Colts' Clayton Geathers: Wanted back in Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Chris Ballard said he will meet with Geathers' agents this week to discuss his contract status, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. "Do we want Clayton back? Yes, we want Clayton back," Ballard remarked Wednesday at the NFL combine.

The 36-year-old Geathers is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. While he's arguably lost a step at this stage in his career, Geathers remains an effective player when operating near the line of scrimmage and could certainly be of service to the up-and-coming Colts defense in 2019 as the team continues to groom its safeties of the future.

Colts' Clayton Geathers: Finishes season solidly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geathers logged 11 tackles (nine solo) in Saturday's 31-13 divisional-round loss to the Chiefs. He finishes the regular season with 89 tackles, three passes defended and one forced fumble.

Geathers racked up a career-high amount of tackles in 2018, and started all 12 of the games he played. Despite being hampered by lingering knee and neck injuries for much of the year, the-26-year-old managed to consistently maintain a heavy workload -- eclipsing 70 defensive snaps during both of the Colts' playoff games. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, it remains to be seen whether Geathers will return to Indianapolis in 2019.

Colts' Clayton Geathers: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geathers (knee) is active for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans.

A lingering knee issue kept Geathers sidelined for the final two regular season games, but it looks like he is good to go Saturday. Barring any setbacks, look for him to resume his usual role as the Colts' starting strong safety, which should reduce Mike Mitchell's role as a result. The fourth-year veteran started all 12 games he played in this season.

Colts' Clayton Geathers: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Geathers (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans.

Geathers has sat out the last two games due to a lingering knee injury, and his status for Indianapolis' playoff opener remains up in the air. If Geathers were unable to suit up versus the Texans, Mike Mitchell and J.J. Wilcox would once again split snaps at strong safety.
