Bengals great Ken Anderson’s Hall of Fame bid falls short

Cincinnati Bengals legend Ken Anderson will have to wait for a possible Pro Football Hall of Fame call for another year.

Wednesday, the Hall announced the three senior finalists and left Anderson off the list.

This market the second year in a row that the Bengals inaugural Ring of Honor member has made it to the final 12 before being left off a finalists ballot that all but guarantees enshrinement.

Fellow Bengals great Ken Riley used this same senior selection process to become the second member of the franchise to ever reach the Hall this year.

Anderson figures to be in this conversation yet again, with his possible call waiting another year.
