The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Willie Anderson, Isaac Curtis to join Cincinnati Bengals’ Ring of Honor

Willie Anderson, Isaac Curtis to join Cincinnati Bengals’ Ring of Honor

Publish Date: 07/21/2022
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Willie Anderson, an offensive tackle, and Isaac Curtis, a wide receiver, have been selected to become the newest members of the Cincinnati Bengals Ring of Honor. On Wednesday, the club officially announced the players who will be inducted into the Ring of Honor for the second year. Check out the best betting sites for sports betting on the NFL.

Bengals Season Ticket holders voted for Anderson and Curtis from a list of 15 players who have made significant contributions to the franchise’s history and legacy.

The owner of the Cincinnati Bengals, Mike Brown, referred to the two players as “two of our finest all-time players,” citing the impact that the players had on the Bengals.

“Willie was as good a right offensive tackle as you could draw up. He had it all — strength, movement, and attitude. Isaac had incredible speed along with great hands. This is evidence for how our fans felt about Isaac during his career,” he said on the team’s website.

“They knew he was special. The Bengals are fortunate to have both of these outstanding players in the Ring of Honor.”

The induction ceremony will take place at halftime of Thursday Night Football’s Week 4 matchup with the Miami Dolphins on September 29.

Anderson, Curtis on Ring of Honor

Anderson was the best right offensive lineman of his period and played from 1996 until 2007. The four-time Pro Bowler appeared in 181 Bengals games, ranking eighth on the team’s all-time list. Anderson set two NFL records for HB Corey Dillon: an NFL rookie record of 246 rushing yards vs. the Tennessee Oilers in 1997 and an NFL record 278 rushing yards vs. the Denver Broncos in 2000. In 2005, he helped the team set a record for the fewest sacks allowed with 21 and again in 2007 with 17.

“This organization is pretty much built on how well their (offensive) lineman play. For the fans to pick that, to me that was an honor,” said Anderson after the announcement.

“For us to be only the fifth and sixth guys to go in, and for me to go in with someone like Isaac Curtis — the first ‘No. 85’ — I’m pumped,” Anderson said. “It’s an honor.”

Meanwhile, Curtis, who played from 1973-84, was considered a game-changing wide receiver during his season period with the Bengals. He still owns the team record for average yards per reception (17.07). He ranks third in career receiving yards (7101) and 100-yard games (20) and ranks fourth in receiving touchdowns in the team’s history (53).

As soon as he learned that he would be inducted into the Ring of Honor, he conveyed his gratitude to the fans.

“I’m very honored to go in this early,” said Curtis. “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,” said Curtis.

Other Ring of Honor Players

Besides Curtis and Anderson, Kicker Jim Breech, RB James Brooks, WR Cris Collinsworth, RB Corey Dillon, and QB Boomer Esiason were also inducted into the Ring of Honor, along with WR Chad Johnson, safety David Fulcher, guards Dave Lapham and Max Montoya, nose tackle Tim Krumrie, tight end Bob Trumpy, linebacker Reggie Williams, and cornerback Lemar Parrish.

QB Kenny Anderson, Hall of Fame coach and founder Brown, Hall of Fame tackle Anthony Munoz, and Hall of Fame cornerback Ken Riley were all inducted into the Ring of Honor last year.
