My All Time Favorites

We're now at 75 days until the Bengals' regular-season opener against the Raiders kicks off. (75 days!!!)

While that seems like forever... it is a whole summer away... the good news is we're just around 25 days away from players reporting to Cincy for training camp and the pads finally come back on. We're also just 45 days away from Cincinnati's preseason opener vs. the Giants. Needless to say, football is coming.

For now, here's a look at all of the Bengals who've worn jersey number 75.

Ernie Wright .................... 1968-71

Stan Walters ................... 1972-74

Al Krevis ......................... 1975

Wilson Whitley ................ 1977-82

Bruce Reimers ................ 1984-91

Jack Linn ........................ 1993

Anthony Brown ............... 1995-98

Jamain Stephens ............ 1999-2002

Scott Kooistra ................. 2003-09

Devon Still ...................... 2012-15

Now in his fourth season with the Bengals, Devon Still currently wears No. 75. The longest-tenured Bengal with No. 75 was guard Bruce Reimers. He was part of an offensive line that was dominant in the late 80s during one of the franchise's best periods. Reimers also started every game for the '88 club who made it to Super Bowl. He was also inducted into the Iowa State football hall of fame.

After Reimers, Wilson Whitley was the next longest-tenured Bengal who started full time (sorry, Scott Kooistra). After a standout career at University of Houston, which landed him in the College Football HOF, Whitley went on to start 79 games in Cincinnati during a six season span.
