Bengals released DE Robert Geathers.
A career Bengal, Geathers was ostensibly kept on the last several years as a legacy. He offered very little on the field. Now going on age 32, Geathers may struggle to find more than a camp invite at the minimum salary. Fri, Feb 27, 2015 01:40:00 PM

Bengals DE Robert Geathers admitted after the season that he may not be back with the team in 2015.

Geathers is the Bengals' longest-tenured player as he just wrapped up his 11th season with the club. After playing just two games in 2013 because of an elbow injury, Geathers was demoted to backup duties and registered just one sack as a rotational lineman across 600-plus snaps. The Bengals can save $3.05 million by releasing the 31-year-old. He's entering the final year of his contract.

Bengals placed DE Robert Geathers on injured reserve with an elbow injury, ending his season.

Geathers, the Bengals' longest-tenured player at ten years, didn't record a tackle in two games played this season. He was demoted to No. 3 end duties with Carlos Dunlap taking over at left end. Wallace Gilberry will vault up the depth chart, while Devon Still and Margus Hunt could see some time on the edge.

The Bengals are "preparing to hear the worst" on DE Robert Geathers (elbow).

Geathers injured his arm in Monday night's win over the Steelers. He's expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve. Wallace Gilberry will take over as the No. 3 end. Rookie Margus Hunt may now be active on game days.

Bengals DE Robert Geathers exited Monday night's Week 2 game against the Steelers with an elbow injury and will not return.

Geathers is the Bengals' longest-tenured player as a ten-year veteran. After starting all 16 games last season, Geathers has been jumped by Carlos Dunlap for the starting left end job. Geathers is a rotational player.

Bengals re-signed LE Robert Geathers.

Cincinnati is keeping the band together. Geathers, the team's longest tenured player, chipped in three sacks last season and was a solid run defender while starting every game. He and fourth-year DE Carlos Dunlap will compete for the starting left end job this summer. It'd be nice to see the Bengals turn the keys over to Dunlap because he's such a better pass rusher than Geathers.

Bengals.com says the team "would like to strike a deal" with free agent DE Robert Geathers.

Cincinnati is trying to keep its top-three pass rush intact, already tagging Michael Johnson and re-signing Wallace Gilberry. Geathers, 29, is the Bengals' longest-tenured player. He started all 16 games in 2012, registering three sacks.

Bengals LE Robert Geathers (knee) participated in practice on Monday and looks set to play next Monday night.

"It's time to go... I should be fine," said Geathers. The bigger news, though, is that starting LE Carlos Dunlap (knee) didn't suit up on Monday and looks iffy for the Ravens. If Dunlap were to miss, Geathers, rookie DT Devon Still, Jamaal Anderson, and LB Manny Lawson would play in a rotation of sorts. Joe Flacco already has a juicy matchup against Cincinnati's secondary, and not having to worry about Dunlap would be even better.

Bengals LE Robert Geathers will miss the next few weeks of training camp after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Bengals are optimistic he'll be back by the September 10 opener, although there are no guarantees. Geathers, 29, started 15 games last season, but his role was scaled back and he graded out negatively as both a pass rusher and run stopper by Pro Football Focus. Geathers is due a $4.2 million base salary, which seems like an awful lot for an underachieving rotational player. Carlos Dunlap and Jamaal Anderson will see increased reps.
Fri, Aug 3, 2012 05:28:00 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis defended LE Robert Geathers' play after he recorded just one sack in 16 starts last year.

"Robert has done everything we've asked and done everything right," said Lewis. "He's not been an effective pass rusher, but he does a good job playing the right gap." Cincinnati ranked 19th in run defense and served up more than 4.4 YPC last season, so it's not as if Geathers is keying a stout unit. Pro Football Focus ranked Geathers as the 44th run-stopping 4-3 end out of 65 last season. He was 63rd of 65 as a pass rusher.

The Cincinnati Enquirer suggests that "only one" of DEs Robert Geathers and Antwan Odom will return in 2011.

Both veterans are due over $4 million for next season. After missing 22 games the past two years, Odom seems more likely to go. With the "Fisher Price" duo of Michael Johnson and Carlos Dunlap emerging as starters, Geathers would play a rotational role.
Wed, Feb 16, 2011 12:28:00 PM

Bengals LE Robert Geathers (foot) returned to practice on Monday.

Geathers missed the final three weeks of camp and preseason, but will be ready for opening weekend. An annual IDP disappointment since his 10-sack breakout in 2006, Geathers had just four sacks and 36 tackles last year.
Mon, Sep 6, 2010 03:38:00 PM

Bengals LE Robert Geathers was spotted with a boot on his foot Thursday and is undergoing tests.

The Bengals' official site says Geathers could miss a few weeks, although his status for the regular season doesn't appear to be in doubt. This should give second-round rookie Carlos Dunlap a chance to impress with extra reps.

Bengals LE Robert Geathers was used as a stand-up pass rusher at times during last week's OTAs.

Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer is experimenting with all kinds of different looks this offseason. With rookies Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins now in the mix, he has plenty of quality bodies to work with. The Bengals ranked 16th in the league last season with 34 sacks and are expecting to get Antwan Odom back for training camp.
Sun, May 23, 2010 11:11:00 AM

Bengals LE Robert Geathers (microfracture surgery) was on the field with the first-team defense on Friday.

Geathers missed OTAs while rehabbing, so today was his first time on the field since November. He's on track to be ready to play by Week 1, with third-rounder Michael Johnson acting as his backup.
