The NFL is becoming a passing league, and the Bengals have had their share of good receivers.
And all of the Bengals' great receivers have had a reception of at least 70 yards.
Billy Brooks holds the Bengals' record for longest reception with a 94 yard reception in 1977.
(Although that is the Bengals' record, it wasn't even the longest reception in 1977, thanks to a 95 yard catch by Green Bay's Steve Odom)
In an era when the NFL's top receiver failed to tally 900 yards, Brooks had a good year in 1977, finishing 7th in NFL receiving yards with 772.
On the other end of the spectrum, the Bengals' record for shortest reception is -6 yards by David Klingler, back in 1994 during an 0-7 stretch as the Bengals' starter that season.
Klingler joins 3 other players whose longest reception was for negative yardage:
Champ Henson -2
Sedrick Shaw -4
David Klingler -6
