Bengals All-50 Team Announced

Jul 25, 2017

In April, the Bengals announced plans for fans and media to vote on the 50 best retired players throughout the history of the team in honor of the team's 50th anniversary.

More than 160,000 fan votes were cast.

Once all 50 players were chosen, they were narrowed down to the top players in each position.

Players were selected based on career statistics, team records and votes from the Bengals First 50. Twenty-six of the retired players and two head coaches made the All-50th Team.

The All-50th Team will be pictured on banners that will be unveiled at the Bengals' regular season home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on September 10.

Here are the top 50 players as chosen by fans and media.
