5. Anthony Muñoz, T (34.130 at the end of 1992 season)

Anthony Muñoz needs no introduction. The Bengals drafted him third overall in the 1980 NFL Draft and what followed was a 13-year career in the Queen City that earned Muñoz a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Muñoz spent all 13 years of his career with Cincinnati at the left tackle spot and he was dominant there. I mentioned how he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (which happened in 1998) but he also made 11 Pro Bowls and was named All-Pro nine times during his career.

When Muñoz suited up for his final Bengals game on Dec. 27, 1992, he was 34 years and 130 days old, making him the fifth-oldest player in franchise history. During his prestigious career in the Queen City, Muñoz started in two Super Bowls, both of which were losses to the 49ers. He was a member of the Bengals’ inaugural Ring of Honor class in 2021.

Muñoz isn’t just the best offensive lineman in Bengals history but is considered to be one of the best offensive linemen in NFL history. It’s not surprising to see that he played well into his 30s.
