As you've probably seen by now, we've begun a series of Bengals 2012 season awards that we're calling "The CJ's". We have gone through a couple of awards and your votes have determined the winners of each. Keep reading and voting to give the awards to the deserving nominees of each subject.

THE CJ AWARD FOR BEST BENGALS FREE AGENT ACQUISITION: In a bit of a surprise, the first CJ went to defensive end, Wallace Gilberry. The former Chief came off of the street early in the season and brought a nice rotational option in an excellent Bengals defensive front. Mojokong and Josh Kirkendall of Cincy Jungle nominated Gilberry and 33 percent of the total votes went that way (125 votes). The runner-up was BenJarvus Green-Ellis with 18 percent of the total votes (69 votes) and he was nominated by Jason Garrison of Cincy Jungle.

THE CJ AWARD FOR THE 2012 BENGALS PLAY OF THE YEAR: This one was a tight race between two plays, but ultimately a big play by rookie Mohamed Sanu won the award. Lined up as a quarterback in the Wildcat formation during Week Three versus the Washington Redskins, Sanu threw a 73-yard bomb to A.J. Green for a touchdown. The play won 39 percent of your votes (105 total), while the pick-six by Leon Hall against the Steelers was a close runner-up with 36 percent of the votes (99 total).

Thanks for reading and voting! There are more CJ's to come, so keep your comments and votes coming! If you want to track the awards on Twitter, use #TheCJs.
