Remember former Saint Jumpy Geathers?
His son is now a Saint.
The Saints signed Jeremy Geathers as a free agent today.
The younger Geathers is a pass rushing defensive end from UNLV.
His fahter Jumpy played 13 years in the NFL as a pass-rushing star for the Saints, Redskins, Falcons and Broncos from 1984-96.
http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/ analysis of Geathers: His father Jumpy Geathers played defensive line in the NFL for 13 seasons…Uncle Robert Geathers, Sr. played in the NFL for six years with the Buffalo Bills….Cousin Robert Geathers Jr. currently plays for the Cincinnati Bengals….He spent one year at Butler Community College in Kansas..Also being looked at as a possible outside linebacker…He came out early after his junior season and that might have been a mistake…May not have all the physical tools you look for but he knows how to get after the quarterback which should earn him a roster spot somewhere in the NFL.
