Geathers offers depth at the 5-tech, in rotation with Ced Thornton (as of right now).

Geathers (6-7, 325) has bounced around quite a bit. This is his sixth team, heading into his fourth year as a pro


@GeoffMosherCSN
Quote:
Geathers brought in to compete. Eagles need another 5-technique opposite Fletcher Cox. Vinny Curry also will work in DE in the scheme.

Clifton Geathers is 6-7, 325. In 8 games for the Colts last year, he recorded 5 tackles & 1 sack. Was drafted by Browns in 6th rd, 2010.

Not bad, any value for him was good because he was a dead man walking.

That size though Shocked, some of you may hate Chip....but you have to love that he is completely the opposite from Andy when it comes to that.

That's cause Andy wanted to be the biggest guy on the block.

Camp body with a chance to make the roster. Guess he could at least put his arms up and attempt a JJ Swatt? Fact that he is that big , with that size and being disgarded so easily team after team in three years means either lack of work ethic or ability. Makes no difference if you are 6'7" but play like your 4'7" on the field. Guess we'll see come camp? Either way player for player was better then getting nothing when he was cut, which was inevitable.

Competition at 5-tech, I like. Nice player to add to the rotation with that size. Thornton, Curry, and Geathers is a great start. Add another 5-tech via mid-high draft pick and we'll be set there with starter and quality depth/rotation.

He will compete for the back up spot with Thorton. The starter at the 5 technique isn't on the team yet.

Couldn't be any happier with that. Size and versatility is something Chip is very fond of.

Havili was sadly never making the team with Chip, so nice to get some competition at DE.

Thornton will be the top back up at the 3 and 5 in a perfect world.
