The Colts are closing in on a deal to re-sign safety Clayton Geathers, according to a source. Geathers, who recently took visits to Dallas and Tampa, spent his first four seasons with the Colts. He missed 23 games due to injury his four years. Geathers was out 11 months after suffering a scary neck injury that put his career in question when he stopped Tennessee running back DeMarco Murrary on fourth down in a game in 2016. When healthy, Geathers' versatility made him one of the Colts most valuable defensive players because he could double as a safety and as an extra linebacker if necessary. He had a career-high 89 tackles, including 61 solo, last season.

Another farewell from the Packers, this one to Randall Cobb after the No. 6 all-time franchise receiving leader signed with the Cowboys on Tuesday. Said GM Brian Gutekunst via the team website: "For the past eight seasons, Randall was a terrific leader and great player for the Packers. He was part of some very memorable moments and contributed to a lot of great wins. We thank Randall, his wife, Aiyda, and the rest of their family for all they have given to the organization and our community. Randall will always be a member of the Packers family."

The Packers say thanks and goodbye to Clay Matthews, their all-time sacks leader who signed with the Rams on Tuesday. Said GM Brian Gutekunst via the team website: "We want to thank Clay for all that he has contributed to the Packers over the past 10 seasons.

Trevor Siemian is visiting the Jets Wednesday as the team begins its search for a backup QB. It's slim pickings out there: Brock Osweiler (played under Adam Gase), Mike Glennon, Blaine Gabbert, Robert Griffin III ... get the picture? The door isn't shut on a Josh McCown return, but he may take another two months or so to decide his future and he understands the team must proceed with its business. Siemian didn't see any action last season with the Vikings. With the Broncos, he was 13-11 as a starter, with 30 TDs, 24 INTs, a 59-percent completion rate and a 79.9 passer rating. The Vikings reportedly want to re-sign him.

As many are pointing out, the Steelers did not make the playoffs as a rookie. I'm simply relaying what Bell said.

The Bills will host free-agent safety Maurice Alexander on a visit later this week, a source said Tuesday. Alexander exclusively played special teams for the Seahawks last season after four seasons contributing on defense for the Rams. Buffalo is deep at safety but its low-rated special teams could use a boost. NFL Network first reported the visit.

The Texans have signed backup quarterback AJ McCarron to one-year, $3 million contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed. McCarron will be an improvement at the position behind Deshaun Watson, who was backed up by Brandon Weeden and Joe Webb in 2018. Watson played through injuries last season, but played in all 16 regular season games, a season after recovering from a torn ACL.

The Rams have signed LB Clay Matthews to a two-year deal, the team announced. Matthews spent the last 10 seasons with the Packers, where he amassed 83.5 sacks and six interceptions. With the Rams, Matthews joins a linebacking corps that includes Cory Littleton, Dante Fowler and Samson Ebukam. Matthews attended Agoura HS, which is 15 miles from the Rams' training facility, and starred at USC.

Two long-time Packers move on within hours. On the same day, Clay Matthews signs with the Rams and Randall Cobb with the Cowboys. It became fairly obvious during the season that they would move on, but both were close with QB Aaron Rodgers so it could have an impact in the locker room if not on the field.
