Earlier this afternoon we began to hear rumblings of safety Clayton Geathers and the Indianapolis Colts working on a deal to keep him in a horseshoe. The team confirmed as much soon after that they had indeed agreed to a contract with the 2015 fourth round selection.

This is good news for a few reasons. First and foremost, Geathers wanted to be here. He’s also bringing familiarity to the backend of a much improved Colts’ defense, and the oft-injured safety looks to be coming back on a low-risk deal.
Can confirm #colts and Clayton Geathers have agreed to 1-year deal. Not yet signed.— Mike Chappell (@mchappell51) March 20, 2019
The Colts look to have passed on the big name free agents who were available, and have decided to “push” on making wholesale changes for at least another year to the secondary. Geathers has averaged just over 10 games per season since being drafted, and has yet to truly become a playmaker in the minds of many.
The Colts hope to see his very best yet in the 2019 season.
