CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Come April 19, the dawning of a new era in Cincinnati Bengals’ history will be unveiled.

Bengals fans will get their first look at the team’s new uniforms next Monday.

The team posted a video ahead of the big day to showcase the Bengals’ uniforms through the years. The video details the inspiration behind the Bengals’ start and goes over the changing looks throughout the decades.

The Bengals announced in January they would have some new looks for the upcoming season.

When they made the announcement, the only hint they offered up was the team would have “new stripes.”

An orange No. 9 Joe Burrow jersey with black stripes on the shoulder areas appeared on eBay and Twitter.

A new look will not be the only thing different for the Bengals in 2021.

The franchise announced recently the addition of a Ring of Honor.

Former players, coaches, and those who played a significant role in the franchise’s history and tradition will be candidates for the Ring of Honor.

The first two members of the inaugural class are Paul Brown and Anthony Munoz. Season Ticket Members and Suite Owners will select the remaining two members from a ballot that will be released in May.

“The Bengals Ring of Honor is a way to show our appreciation for individuals who have made a significant impact on our franchise,” said Bengals President Mike Brown.

“We selected Paul Brown and Anthony Munoz. They are in the Hall of Fame in Canton and it pleases me to put them out front as our initial inductees. We have a lot of great players and coaches to honor and it will be fun to reminisce as we go about this process.”

The Bengals will announce the two people joining Brown and Munoz in the inaugural class in conjunction with a dedicated Ring of Honor home game later this year.
