Thomas Arthur Keating (born September 2, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois) is a retired American football player. A defensive tackle, he played for the University of Michigan before he was drafted in 1964 in the fifth round of the American Football League draft by the Buffalo Bills. After two seasons with the Bills, he joined the AFL's Oakland Raiders, where he earned AFL All-Star honors in 1966 and 1967. He started for the Raiders in their 1967 AFL Championship victory over the Houston Oilers, and in the second AFL-NFL World Championship Game. He played for the AFL Raiders through 1969, and then with the same team in the National Football League from 1970 through 1972. He later played for the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs. His brother Bill Keating, also from the University of Michigan, played in the American Football League as well, for the Denver Broncos and the Miami Dolphins. Tom is now a private investigator, residing in Washington, D.C., with his wife Karen Sprecher-Keating and son James Alexander Keating.
