Regarding his impending free agency this offseason, Colts S Clayton Geathers said he’s loved his time in Indianapolis but added: “Where the chips fall, the chips fall.”
“I remember coming in (as) a young kid, this city welcomed me with open arms,” Geathers said, via Stephen Holder of The Athletic. “It’s been great. The city has been great to me. Not only to me, but to my family. My daughter, all she knows is ‘Go Colts!’ That’s special, man. This season was special. It won’t be forgotten. Moving forward, I’ve done all I can. I’ve pretty much given it all to the Lord. Where the chips fall, the chips fall.”
Although Holder says the Colts would like to re-sign Geathers, a deal is “absolutely not” imminent nor is he likely to be Indianapolis’ top priority this offseason, given his injury issues.
Should the Colts move on from Geathers, Holder names Giants’ impending free-agent S Landon Collins as a possible upgrade at the position.
