Clifton Geathers, who played high school football for head coach Nate Thompson at Carvers Bay, has been signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad. The defensive end was released by the Dallas Cowboys last week.
Geathers announced the move on twitter, "I'm with the BIlls just trying to make a honest living :-) thank u god for another job opening. Can't hold a good man down when I have u."
The 6'7" 325 pound Geathers was a WPDE All-Zone football selection in 2005. He later played college ball for the South Carolina Gamecocks before turning pro following his junior season.
The Bills mark the fifth team in Geathers three year NFL career. He was signed by the Cleveland Browns after being drafted in the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and the Cowboys.
Geathers, 24, is the younger brother of Robert Geathers, Jr., who plays defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals.
