Before the Cincinnati Bengals went on their magical run to the Super Bowl last season they established a new club within the organization. Last April, the Bengals announced that they would induct the inaugural class of their Ring of Honor.

It was a star-studded class, to say the least. The inductees included former owner Paul Brown, Hall of Fame tackle Anthony Munoz, quarterback Ken Anderson (1981 NFL MVP), and cornerback Ken Riley.

Those Bengals legends have some company now. On Wednesday, the Bengals announced that former offensive tackle Willie Anderson and former wide receiver Issac Curtis would be the newest members of the Bengals Ring of Honor.

Curtis was drafted 15th overall in 1973. His first four seasons were his best as he was named to the Pro Bowl each year and received second-team All-Pro honors three times (1974-1976). The best season that Curtis had with the Bengals came in 1975 when he registered career-highs in yards (934) and yards per catch (21.2).

In 1981, along with the aforementioned Ken Anderson, Curtis was a part of the first Bengals team that made the Super Bowl, but they lost to the San Francisco 49ers. Curtis played his entire 12-year career with the Bengals and amassed 416 receptions for 7,101 yards and 53 touchdowns.

Anderson was also a first-round pick, coming into the league in 1996. It took him a little longer to be recognized as one of the best at his position, but once he got started, he never looked back.

Starting in 2003, Anderson received four consecutive All-Pro nods and Pro Bowl selections. Anderson played for the Bengals for 12 of his 13 NFL seasons (played with the Ravens in 2008) and started 173 of the 181 games he suited up for.

Can the Bengals ride the wave of their past legends being honored to another Super Bowl run in 2022? We’ll begin to find out in a few months.
