Draft Scout *Clifton Geathers News
12/04/13 - DL Clifton Geathers didn't practice Wednesday, though the Eagles said it was not injury-related. It's not known whether he will practice Thursday or play Sunday.
08/11/13 - DL Clifton Geathers is on his sixth team since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2010. Geathers has plenty of people to talk to about the NFL life.
His father was a 1981 draft pick of the Buffalo Bills whose career was cut short by injuries. His uncle, Jumpy, played 13 years in the league for four teams. His older brother, Robert Jr., has played nine seasons with Cincinnati. And his younger brother, Kwame, is an undrafted free agent with San Diego.
"Coming into it, my uncle told me it's a cold league," Geathers said. "He said it's cut-throat. He said you've got to be a dog to live in it. That's what I've done. I've been a dog, man. Always kept my head up. Every where I've been I've given my 110 percent."
03/28/13 - The Indianapolis Colts acquired fullback Stanley Havili from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for defensive end Clifton Geathers.
The Colts also announced restricted free agent tackle Jeff Linkenbach has signed his qualifying offer.
A sixth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2010, Geathers played in eight games for Indianapolis in 2012, recording five tackles and a sack. He has also spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys during his three-year career.
Geathers, 25, comes from a NFL family. His brother, Robert, played nine years as a defensive end with the Cincinnati Bengals. His father, Robert, Sr., a defensive lineman, was a third-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 1981, and his uncle, James "Jumpy" Geathers, played 13 years in the NFL career, and was part of two Super Bowl Championship teams.
Havili became expendable after the Eagles signed free agent James Casey.
"Stanley fills an immediate need for us at the fullback position and provides us with a solid option in our new offensive scheme," said Colts general manager Ryan Grigson. "His speed, explosion and hard-nosed playing style are his main strengths, but he also possesses sound blocking and receiving skills. Stanley had a very productive career at USC and gained valuable experience as a starting fullback and special teams contributor for Philadelphia last year.
"The Eagles in return are getting a young, very big and strong player in Clif Geathers that can play every defensive line position to fill a need moving forward in their new scheme as well. We feel it's a win-win."
12/31/12 - DE Clifton Geathers notched his first career sack and the team's first of the game when he dropped quarterback Matt Schaub in the first quarter. Geathers has played relatively well the last two weeks in wins over Kansas City and Houston.
10/21/12 - DT Clifton Geathers had two tackles in extended playing against the Browns. Geathers is another recent free agent pick up who has been forced into the defensive line rotation due to injuries at his position.
