Excitement is in the air in Bengals Nation. The organization introduced their Ring of Honor earlier this month and revealed their new uniforms on Monday.

Legendary wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh spoke with Bengals Team Reporter Marisa Contipelli following the uniform reveal. 

Anthony Muñoz, an inaugural inductee into the Bengals Ring of Honor along with Paul Brown, joined Contipelli and Houshmanzadeh to discuss the significance of honoring the past. 

“In the fifty plus years of this organization, there have been some amazing players that have gone through here,” Muñoz said. “There are a lot of guys worthy of being in the Ring of Honor.”

Muñoz wants former NFL MVP and legendary quarterback Ken Anderson to get the call for the Bengals Ring of Honor and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  

Houshmanzadeh asked which offensive lineman the former left tackle would like to see with Muñoz in the Ring of Honor.

“Max Montoya to me was one of the best guards I ever watched play. You get him on the football field, you better be ready for war," Muñoz said. "Max Montoya came every Sunday to battle. He is probably the one guy who has not gotten enough credit out of all the guys that are constantly mentioned.”

Excitement not only is among fans, but is among former Bengals players.

“It’s like a relief [for former players],” Houshmanzadeh said. “The Bengals are finally doing this. Just the acknowledgement that guys would like to have. They’re excited for it.”

The great part about it is honoring legends that deserve their due, while also remembering their teammates and coaches that helped Muñoz, Anderson and so many others achieve greatness. 

“I think the appreciation goes far beyond the humility and excitement of me being inducted,” Muñoz said. “The great thing about it is that you can’t forget, because it is a team sport, you can’t forget the guys that you went out every Sunday afternoon, Monday night, or Sunday night and played the game with.”

The two Cincinnati greats are looking forward to the Ring of Honor bringing alumni together from all decades of Bengals History and establish great relationships.

The team will release more details in May about the inaugural Ring of Honor ballot. Season Ticket Members and Suite Owners will vote in the remaining two members from the ballot. 

Cincinnati will honor the inaugural Ring of Honor class during halftime at a game in 2021.
