Mar 8, 2022 at 2:07 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly signed offensive guard Keaton Sutherland, per Field Yates of ESPN.


Update: The 49ers announced that Sutherland has been signed to a reserve/future contract. Reserve/future contracts are used to claim the rights to players. They take effect at the start of the new league year on March 16, and that's when the players begin counting against the salary cap.

The Cincinnati Bengals signed Sutherland (6-5, 316) as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2019. The Miami Dolphins claimed him off waivers on September 26, 2019, waiving him a year later. Sutherland returned to the Bengals on September 8, 2020, spending 20 days on the practice squad before being promoted to the active roster.

Sutherland, 25, spent this past season on the Bengals practice squad. He has started two games and has six game appearances during his NFL career.

The San Francisco 49ers have come close to hoisting the franchise's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. They fell just short during the 2012 season, losing 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens.

Last season, the 49ers were a play or two away from returning to sports' biggest stage, falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the NFC title game. San Francisco can't get over the hump. On Monday, the Bay Area celebrated the Golden State Warriors' seventh championship as thousands of fans swarmed Market Street for the parade.

There were three consecutive heartbreaking losses in the Jim Harbaugh days. And now Kyle Shanahan's 49ers have lost two big games, Super Bowl LIV in February 2020, and the NFC Championship Game earlier this year. And we're not even discussing the dark years when the team struggled under the likes of Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly. Those names make me want to throw up.
