Bengals safety Kevin Kaesviharn #34

 

When I was asked to write an article about the top 5 safeties in Bengals history, a few names came immediately to mind. As I started to research, however, I realized that this wasn’t going to be easy by any means. After the first few obvious ones, it was pretty tricky to nail down the rest. I have determined the five I picked, but it’s certainly open to interpretation. Let the debate begin.

5. Kevin Kaesviharn-Kaesviharn joined the Bengals in 2001, after taking an unusual route to the NFL, and remained with the team through 2006. During his tenure, he played in nearly every game, even when he wasn’t the starter. He was undrafted out of small Augustana College, then began his professional career with the Arena Football League’s Iowa Barnstormers. He also spent a year in the short-lived XFL before joining the NFL. He played well right away, and consistently was a solid part of the Bengals defense. His best season came in 2006, his last in Cincinnati, when he recorded six interceptions and four sacks, as well as a forced fumble. While never an all-pro safety, he was very good, and one of my favorites.
