Safety Johnathan Cyprien will work out for the Colts on Monday, a source tells ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (on Twitter). Cyprien has been on the market since his release from the Titans in March, but hasn’t played since 2017 due to a torn ACL.
Cyprien was given the green light by doctors in May, which should mean that he’ll find a deal sooner rather than later. He’d be a logical fit in Indianpolis where Clayton Geathers is sidelined after having his knee scoped. Malik Hooker, meanwhile, has been a full participant in practice, but past hernia, hip, foot, ACL, and MCL issues have held him back in the past. Last year, Hooker missed a pair of regular season games plus the Colts’ divisional-round loss to the Chiefs.
The advanced metrics have never been high on Cyprien, but evaluators still view him as an effective stopper in the secondary. The 28-year-old (29 in July) has started in all 70 of his career games.
