The Cincinnati Bengals Ring of Honor has officially been announced.

The inaugural class of 2021 will feature the two most prominent former Bengals of all-time: Hall of Fame left tackle Anthony Munoz, and team founder Paul Brown.

Per the team’s website, the names will be displayed along the east facade of Paul Brown Stadium, which matches were they were back in February when the club accidentally leaked their Ring of Honor plans.

Two more inaugural members will join Munoz and Brown this year, as season ticker holders and Paul Brown Stadium suite owners will be able to vote them in later this year. The other likely candidates are Boomer Esiason, Chad Johnson, Ken Anderson, and Ken Riley, as they were all featured in the announcement video. The two other names will be revealed during a home game this season.

“We are embarking on an exciting new chapter,” Bengals executive vice president Katie Blackburn said. “This is an important year to bring people back together and engage in meaningful ways that build community. Through the Bengals Ring of Honor, we will be able to celebrate our great history and keep memories alive as we create content that can be shared for generations to come.”
