The Cincinnati Bengals finally made the long-requested move for the franchise by announcing its Ring of Honor.

In no great shock, Paul Brown and Anthony Munoz will be the first two inaugural members.

Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com caught up with Munoz after he learned of his induction in a surprise meeting that he thought was a routine thing and the Hall of Famer spoke about what it means to go into the ring alongside Brown:

“To know I had a chance to spend 10 of my 13 years around him every day was amazing. Now you get a chance to go into this Ring of Honor with him and it’s pretty cool. It is really exciting. It’s an honor. The organization has had some amazing, amazing players over the 50–plus years of existence. I think this is great because now we get to celebrate all the guys and that’s what it’s all about.”

Cincinnati will induct four total former Bengals into the ring this year, with season ticket members getting the chance to vote on the other two. Boomer Esiason, Chad Johnson, Ken Anderson and Ken Riley were the other names featured in the team’s announcement video.

Considering the team’s rich history, fans and the team alike have plenty of personnel to choose from dating back 50-plus years.

For those curious, we’ve already seen a potentially leaked design of Ring of Honor names at Paul Brown Stadium.
