But Anderson took a moment during his press conference after the announcement on Wednesday to talk up another franchise great — running back Corey Dillon.
According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, Anderson singled out Dillon as a guy who should be in the Hall of Fame, as well as Chad Johnson, Ken Riley and Ken Anderson.
But it’s Dillon that might stick out the most for some here.
A second-round pick in 1997, Dillon remained with the team through the 2003 season before getting traded. Things weren’t always great between player and team, so say the least of it, but he’s still one of the most prolific backs in team history and he went on to win a Super Bowl before calling it a career in 2006.
While fans might be split on Dillon for a spot like this, it says a lot about his impact and Anderson himself that his name’s in headlines right now.
Big Will, a finalist last year, says Corey Dillon should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as The Ocho and the two Kennys: They were the best players at their positions, he says.
