All-time receiving yards leaders in Cincinnati Bengals history
14. Dan Ross (3,204)
Bengals TE from 1979-1985
A second-round pick in the 1979 NFL Draft, Dan Ross stepped into the Bengals offense and became a reliable weapon for them. As a rookie in 1979, he had 516 yards and he built on those numbers the next year. In 1980, Ross racked up 724 yards and four touchdowns.
Despite Ross putting up the best numbers of his career in 1981 (910 yards, five touchdowns), the only Pro Bowl the Northeastern product made was the following year in 1982. That year he had 508 yards and three touchdowns.
In 1984, Ross spent a year away from the NFL and joined the USFL. He spent a year with the New Orleans Breakers before returning to the Bengals in 1985. He wasn’t back in the Queen City for long, eventually landing with the Seahawks in ’85 and spending the final year of his career with the Packers in ’86.
Ross’ 3,204 yards put him right inside the top 15 of the all-time receiving leaders for the Bengals.
