The Cincinnati Bengals have been a staple in the NFL since their first season back in 1967. They have made three Super Bowl appearances and have had countless Pro Bowl talents wear their uniform.

That includes Willie Anderson and Isaac Curtis, who will be inducted into Cincinnati's Ring of Honor.

Bengals' season ticket holders chose Anderson and Curtis from a ballot that featured 15 great nominees. They will join a prestigious group that already includes quarterback Ken Anderson, team founder/head coach Paul Brown, offensive tackle Anthony Munoz and cornerback Ken Riley.

Anderson played with the Bengals for over a decade (1996-2007), earning four Pro Bowl nods. He was praised as one of the best right tackles in his era and helped set the team record for fewest sacks allowed (17 in 2007). Anderson also ranks eighth on Cincinnati's all-time list for games (181).

Meanwhile, Curtis made four Pro Bowls across a 12-year stint with the team (1973-1984) and still holds the team record for average yards per reception (17.07). He also ranks third in team history in career receiving yards (7,101), third in 100-yard games (20) and fourth in receiving touchdowns (53).

"I'm very honored to go in this early. I had such a great relationship with the fans. They've always showed me their appreciation, and it made me feel so good. It's really a treat they voted me in."

The Ring of Honor induction ceremony is set to take place at halftime of Cincinnati's Thursday Night Football game against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4 (Sept. 29). For now, the Bengals have odds set at +2100 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
