Colts working out Johnathan Cyprien today

Makes sense to look at depth at box safety with Geathers sitting out until training camp and Farley being dinged up again already... don't think Cyprien would be asking for much that deep into free agency and the race at those safety spots is wide open next to Hooker.

I remember really liking him in that draft. 

 

I agree...if the knee is good...sign him. He was a starting S until he missed last season. Certainly would be competitive with the guys they have right now at SS.

 

Plus, it sounds like he has a bit of a chip on his shoulder after getting hurt and then released...so you know what you are getting from that standpont. And he should have some useful information on two division rivals.

 

I say sign him and let it play out.

The Gaethers injury concern is there and always will be until proven otherwise.  If his knee checks out this should be a nice veteran signing that will certainly improve the depth and experience at the position.

I think he'd be more of a dime LB than a safety for us.

I said it in the other thread...but if the knee checks out...sign him and let him compete for snaps. Sounds like he is extra motivated...and depth is always good to have. Plus the guy knows both JAC and TEN.

 

Seems similar to the Ware signing as a player who has been a starter but has had injury issues.

I'd be surprised it the Colts signed him now. This is the time of year that they work out guys to see how they are physically and then they keep tabs on them in case there is an injury in camp or early in the season. Much like Inman last year.

I don't think this is entirely about Geathers.  I think it's a combination of Geathers and Farley both sitting out.  Who do we have starting at SS in practices with both of them out?

Odum and Hooker are taking the majority of snaps at S

Thanks!  So we're practicing against two free safeties.  That might actually be good practice if there's no tackling going on, but I think we're going to want more of a traditional SS by the time the pads are being put on.

They might sign him.  Almost anytime I hear somebody got a slight "Clean Up" of their knee they miss significant time.  That same language was used with Eric Swoope and he missed an entire season and really wasn't even able to participate in OTAs the next season and it lingered on him for all of 2019.  Hopefully this won't happen with Geathers but I haven't seen anything that is slight that these doctors do to your knee.

Here in Jax I watched him every week. The Jags had no safeties, yet they let him walk, for a reason. He was HORRIBLE in pass defense. As a tackler he was good, but a huge liability in pass defense.

Nothing wrong with adding some depth and competition to a position that's plagued the Colts for years.

    • Young will likely go at No. 3 or No. 4 after teams trade up to draft their WB's. It would take 3 1st's to trade up that far granted we finish outside the top 20th in draft position.    I think it's more likely we package our first and a second if we really like a guy at 12-18th ish 
    • Yea, our division around that time was beastly in the RB department. In addition to MJ-D (2006), the Jags had Fred Taylor, so the Jags had a two-headed monster. The Titans once had Chris Johnson (2008). Then the Texans Arian Foster (2009) still gives me nightmares. Yea, their stats were padded a bit by a shoddy Colts run defense, but I also saw them running on other teams, so I think it was a combination of the two.
    • He's benched behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, once more-   https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/10/16/miami-dolphins-starting-quarterback-ryan-fitzpatrick-josh-rosen-benched
    • I don't believe that. I know for fact that in 2012, this was the wording-   Only players with a “major injury” who are placed on the IR list...   A major injury is described as an injury that renders the player unable to practice or play football for at least six weeks — or 42 calendar days — from the date of injury.   That designated player is eligible to return to practice if he has been on the IR list for at least six weeks from the date he was placed on Reserve. He is eligible to return to the active list if has been on the IR list for at least eight weeks from the date he is placed on Reserve.   The only change to that since is now up to 2 players can return, and I see no bye week exceptions anywhere, either.  I'd like to see that in NFL rules or operations print.
