The Bengals have agreed to terms on a deal with safety Shiloh Keo, a source tells Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). It figures to be a reserve/futures contract for Keo, who didn’t finish the season on an NFL roster.
Keo, 26, racked up 63 tackles in Houston’s secondary in 2013, also defending six passes and snagging an interception. However, the former fifth-round pick’s injury woes and unspectacular play saw him surpassed on the depth chart early in 2014 by Kendrick Lewis and Danieal Manning. Keo was cut by Houston about a month into the season, after battling a calf injury for the first few weeks.
News of Keo’s agreement with the Bengals comes on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Cincinnati had signed seven players off its practice squad to futures contracts.
