There’s not a lot of history behind the #68 jersey, but that doesn’t keep fan-favorite Jonathan Fanene from getting the recognition he deserves. The Bengals drafted Fanene with the 233rd pick in the 7th Round of the 2005 NFL Draft. The Samoa would ride the bench for much of his early career, but once Mike Zimmer came to town, Fanene found his niche as a solid rotational defensive lineman, playing both the tackle and end spots. Fanene has played in 71 games in seven seasons with the Bengals, making 17 starts. He accounted for 91 tackles and 12 sacks over his last four seasons in Cincinnati.
