CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Bengals unveiled a special logo to commemorate the team's 50th season.

The 50th anniversary logo will be featured throughout the season, including on patches the team will wear on home and road uniforms, on the field at Paul Brown Stadium and on the windows of the East Club Lounge facing downtown Cincinnati.

As part of the season celebration, the team will recognize the top 50 retired players as voted on by the fans and media. Fans can vote once per day at Bengals.com/vote until June 15. The final list will be revealed before the season.

The Bengals first 50 and other Bengals legends will be recognized during halftime ceremonies at every regular season home game, which will include video highlights and an on-field presentation. 

In 1967, pro football returned to Cincinnati when Paul Brown headed an ownership group that landed an expansion franchise in the modern-era American Football League.

Brown picked the name Bengals for the new team "to give it a link with past professional football in Cincinnati."
