The Philadelphia Eagles continued to make moves to shore up their new defense by acquiring DE Clifton Geathers from the Colts on Thursday in a trade, giving up fullback Stanley Havili.
Geathers’ (6-7, 325) collegiate career was spent at the University of South Carolina, where he played in 36 games and finished with 72 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss, six sacks and two forced fumbles. He was a sixth-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2010. Since that time, he has spent time in the NFL with Cleveland, Miami, Seattle, Dallas and Indy. The 25-year old Geathers has appeared in 15 total games during his three years of playing professional football. He played in eight games for Indianapolis in 2012, recording five tackles and a sack. Geathers will bring his run-stopping skills to Philadelphia’s new 3-4 defensive front.

It seems like every departing free agent this year has taken out an ad thanking fans of the team he is leaving behind. I haven’t given the majority of them any attention on the site, mostly because that would involve writing the word “classy” more than I care to. I do, however, enjoy new Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin’s send-off to the various restaurants and eateries that...
When Osi Umenyiora signed with the Atlanta Falcons for a base earning of $8.5 million, Dwight Freeney was taking notes. Freeney, now 33 years old, is looking for a deal that exceeds that of Umenyiora, who is just 31 years of age, according to a report by Ian Rapoport.
The knee-jerk reaction would be to call Freeney's demands crazy. His level of play was not nearly as high...
