Keating (6-0, 196) joins the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Temple University. He caught 122 passes for 1,748 yards and 14 touchdowns in four seasons with the Owls. In his final two years at Temple, Keating had 76 catches for 1,146 yards and seven touchdowns.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was impressed with what he saw from Keating at Temple’s pro day earlier this year.

“Alan did a great job at his pro day,” said Dalton. “He showed good speed and quickness and I think he has the potential to be a good player in this league.”

The Cincinnati Bengals announced the signing of undrafted free agent WR Alan Keating on Monday.

Keating, a 6’3”, 215-pound receiver out of Boston College, joins a Bengals receiving corps that includes A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Josh Malone.

He recorded 63 receptions for 845 yards and six touchdowns in his final two seasons at Boston College.

Keating is the fifth player from Boston College to sign with an NFL team this year, joining DB Justin Simmons (Broncos), OT harold Landry (Patriots), OG Jon Baker (Rams) and CB Isaac Yiadom (Broncos).

Cincinnati Bengals add local WR Alan Keating

The Cincinnati Bengals have added local WR Alan Keating to their practice squad.

Keating, a 6’2” undrafted rookie out of Miami University, was a standout performer in college, hauling in 158 receptions for 2,193 yards and 15 touchdowns over his four-year career.

He joins a Bengals squad that has been hit by injuries at the wide receiver position. With A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd sidelined, Keating could see some playing time in the near future if he can impress in practice.

For now, Keating will be looking to learn from the Bengals veteran receivers and make an impact on special teams.

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a contract with Alabama WR Alan Keating.

Keating is a big wide receiver at 6’4” and 215 pounds. He had a breakout season in 2018, catching 71 passes for 1,085 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He is a prototypical NFL receiver with good size, speed, and hands. He will be a welcomed addition to the Bengals offense.

The Bengals are hoping that he can continue his success in the NFL and become another weapon for QB Andy Dalton.

Alan Keating Signs With Cincinnati Bengals

After a successful collegiate career at the University of Notre Dame, Alan Keating has been drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Keating, a 6-foot-3, 313-pound offensive lineman, was a three-year starter for the Irish. He played in all 51 games of his collegiate career and was named second-team All-ACC as a senior.

The Bengals had an immediate need for an offensive lineman after losing left tackle Cordy Glenn to free agency earlier this offseason. With Keating now on the roster, he could compete for the starting job at left guard or right tackle.

Keating is looking forward to starting his NFL career in Cincinnati. “I’m really excited to be a part of the Bengals organization,” Keating said. “It’s an amazing opportunity and I can’t wait to get started. I know there’s a lot of work to be done, but I’m up for the challenge and I’ll do whatever it takes to help this team win.”

Bengals coach Zac Taylor is also excited about Keating’s arrival. “We are thrilled to add Alan to our team,” Taylor said. “He is an excellent player with a tremendous amount of upside. He has great size and athleticism and he plays with a lot of aggression. We are confident that he will be a valuable asset to our offense and contribute to our success in 2019 and beyond.”
