Don’t be surprised if one of these five Bengals winds up in the Ring of Honor.

Max Montoya: Aside from having a name that makes him sound like a superhero, Max Montoya made his name famous by appearing in 168 games with 155 starts in 11 seasons as a member of the Bengals. He earned three Pro Bowl nods (1986, 1988, 1989) and a Second-team All-Pro nod in 1989 while with Cincinnati and four total Pro Bowl nods.

Lemar Parrish: This young man should actually have a bust in Canton, Ohio already. He earned eight Pro Bowl nods during his career, three First-team All-Pro nods, and two Second-team All-Pro nods.

Six of those Pro Bowl nods (1970, 1971, 1974–1977), two of those First-team nods (1976, 1979, 1980), and both of those Second-team All-Pro nods (1974, 1975) came as a member of the Bengals.

Ken Riley: There is absolutely no reason why Ken Riley shouldn’t be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This former sixth-round draft choice spent every one of his 15 seasons with the Bengals, first with the AFL in 1969 and then from 1970 to 1983 once Cincy joined the National Football League.

He’s a three-time All-Pro (1975, 1976, 1983) who earned two MEAC Coach of the Year nods when his playing days are over (1988, 1990).

Trending. Ja’Marr Chase named as Bengals’ worst pick. light

Bob Trumpy: Believe it or not, Bob Trumpy is a two-time AFL All-star (1968, 1969) and a two-time Pro Bowl nod (1970, 1973) who, believe it or not, was a 12th-round draft choice in 1968.

Reggie Williams: Reggie Williams is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame that, no doubt, will be inducted into the Bengals’ Ring of Honor at some point.

14 seasons, 213 career games with 203 starts, if you include his postseason appearances, to go along with 62.5 sacks and 16 interceptions will go a long way in finishing that tale.
