Redskins agreed to terms with DL Clifton Geathers, formerly of the Eagles.

Geathers appeared in all 16 games last season, making one start. He played 254 snaps, generating no pass rush. Geathers is a mountainous 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds, but has only one career sack. He'll be "just a guy" for the Redskins.

Eagles acquired DE Clifton Geathers from the Colts in exchange for FB Stanley Havili.

A mountain at 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds, Geathers has the height and size 3-4 teams want at defensive end. The 2010 sixth-round pick has appeared in just 15 career games, notching five tackles and one sack. Geathers has bounced around the league, spending time with the Browns, Seahawks, Cowboys, and Colts. The 25-year-old will compete for a roster spot in Eagles training camp.

Seahawks claimed DE Clifton Geathers off waivers from the Dolphins.

The Seahawks have done an admirable job of talent collection under first-year GM John Schneider, and Geathers possesses plenty of potential at 6'8/281 with nearly 37-inch arms. He'll compete for a spot at five technique.

Dolphins waived DE Clifton Geathers.

He goes to make room for Chris Baker. Geathers is a physically imposing prospect at 6'8/281, but the Fins think they'll get more production from the undersized Baker. Geathers is likely to resurface on the practice squad.

Dolphins signed DL Clifton Geathers from the practice squad.

First-round pick DL Jared Odrick (foot, fibula) was recently placed on injured reserve after missing all but Week 1. The Dolphins used the available roster spot to replace Odrick on their front seven, and their 16th-ranked run defense has a daunting matchup Week 7 when the Steelers come to town.

Dolphins waived DE Clifton Geathers.

The Fins just claimed Geathers off waivers earlier this month. He'll be replaced by Erik Walden, who was re-signed.

Dolphins claimed DE Clifton Geathers off waivers from the Browns.

Geathers has a lot of work to do to reach his full potential, but he's a mammoth of a man at 6-foot-9 and 280-plus pounds with a sub-5.0 second forty-yard dash time. He'll be developed as the Dolphins' fifth end this season.

Browns signed sixth-round DE Clifton Geathers to a multi-year contract.

A boom-or-bust prospect with freakish length at 6'8/281 with 36 3/4-inch arms and a sub-5.0 forty, Geathers has Calais Campbell-like upside. His motor ran hot and cold at South Carolina, however, and he certainly could've used another year under Steve Spurrier instead of leaving school early.

South Carolina DL Clifton Geathers' arms measured in at 36 3/4 inches at the Gamecocks' Pro Day.

Geathers, who stood on his 4.96 forty time, also has whopping 11 1/8-inch hands -- bigger than Alabama man child Terrence Cody's. A college underachiever, Geathers will be viewed as an extremely high-upside project, likely by 3-4 teams as a defensive end. He's a middle-round prospect.
