Bengals sign Quinton Spain to practice squad; cut Kendall Futrell from it

The Cincinnati Bengals today signed free agent offensive guard Quinton Spain to the practice squad. To make room for Spain, the team released defensive end Kendall Futrell from the practice squad.

Spain (6-4, 330), a sixth-year player out of the West Virginia University, originally was a college free agent signee of the Tennessee Titans in 2015. He was with the Titans through the 2018 season, and then joined the Buffalo Bills in ’19. He has played in 70 career games, with 66 starts. He was released by Buffalo on Oct. 21, and the Bengals quickly pounced on him once he hit the open market.

Futrell, a rookie out of East Carolina University, was a college free agent signee of the Bengals in April. He had spent all seven games this season on Cincinnati’s practice squad.

Because practice squad players can be called up to the main roster on gamedays, Spain can still play in games even if he’s on the practice squad.
