Geer cut by Titans
The numbers didn’t add up for Riar Geer.
The former Fruita Monument High School standout was one of the final 15 cuts made Friday by the Tennessee Titans.
Geer, a tight end, was fourth on the Titans’ depth chart throughout training camp and was one of two tight ends waived. The other was Cameron Graham.
The Titans kept the top three tight ends on their depth chart.
Geer caught three passes for 25 yards in four preseason games.
His father, Dan Geer, told The Daily Sentinel his son hopes to sign with another team in the near future. Riar Geer did not return a call Saturday seeking comment.
Geer was originally signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in April 2010. He made it through four preseason games before he was released on Sept. 4, but signed with the team’s practice squad one day later.
The Broncos released Geer again in November. One week later, the Titans signed him to their practice squad. He re-signed with the Titans in January and was under contract through the lockout.
Geer played at the University of Colorado, where he appeared in 47 games and caught 87 passes for 974 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was one of 30 players on the “watch list” for the John Mackey Award, given each year to the best tight end in college football. Geer set a CU record in 2006 for most receptions (24) by a freshman.
Geer was a Class 5A all-state and a Denver Post All-Colorado performer his senior year at Fruita Monument in 2004, where he played quarterback.
