INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Safety Clayton Geathers has agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts.

The team made the announcement on Wednesday.

Geathers started 12 games for Indy last season and finished third on the team with a career-high 86 tackles. He also had 19 tackles in the Colts' two playoff games.

But the Colts' fourth-round draft pick in 2015 has battled injuries throughout his career including a neck injury that nearly derailed his career. He returned after 11 months of rehabilitation.

Geathers is the ninth free agent Indy has re-signed this offseason. The list includes Adam Vinatieri, the NFL's career scoring leader, right guard Mark Glowinski, defensive tackle Margus Hunt and cornerback Pierre Desir.
