Former Texas A&M OL Keaton Sutherland lands on NFL team's practice squad
Former Texas AM OL Keaton Sutherland is moving to a new chapter in his NFL career, as he has reportedly joined the practice squad with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Sutherland, who appeared in 31 games for the Aggies in his final three seasons ending in 2018, is one of the best Aggies in recent memory. He started 25 games from 2016-18.
Sutherland is back where his NFL career began before he was claimed off of waivers by the Miami Dolphins. Sutherland then appeared in three games for the Dolphins with two starts. He is reunited in Cincinnati with his old offensive line coach from College Station in Jim Turner.
Sutherland’s size and versatility help his cause to contribute to the Bengals. He has experience at both guard and right tackle, and is listed at 6-foot-5 and 316 pounds.
Sutherland spent three seasons under Turner at Texas A&M and blocked for Cincinnati’s 2019 sixth-round pick, Trayveon Williams.
Sutherland could be a good fit in Cincinnati because he understands the concepts of coach Zac Taylor and Turner, which include stretch zone and play-action game plans.
OL Keaton Sutherland is joining the Bengals practice squad, per source. Was also in Cincinnati at the beginning of last season. Played for Bengals OL coach Jim Turner at Texas A&M.
