Former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer will go into the Cardinals Ring of Honor later this year. If the Bengals had such a thing, who would be the first four inductees?

Some teams call it a Ring of Honor, others a Ring of Fame. Regardless, the Bengals do not have any sort of public acknowledgement to honor the great players, coaches, and executives in franchise history at their stadium. One can only hope something along those lines will exist someday. If it ever does, here are our picks for the first class.

Paul Brown

Brown will always be best known for what he accomplished in Cleveland after starting the franchise named after him. However, his name is also on Cincinnati’s current stadium. He founded the Bengals. Brown was the head coach for the franchise’s first three trips to the playoffs. Ownership remains in the Brown family to this day. It would be a posthumous induction, but this is the only logical place to start.
