The Cincinnati Bengals first NFL season came in 1968. The founder of the team, Paul Brown, was famous in the football world for coaching the Cleveland Browns.
The Bengals' first season in 1968 featured uniforms that were very similar to their in-state neighbors and Brown's past franchise: the Cleveland Browns. The uniforms were black with orange striping and the all orange helmets featured the Bengals nickname on the side.
In 2004, this old design was updated with a jersey that featured more accents and more Bengal stripes.
The Cincinnati Bengals currently have one uniform retired: #54 Bob Johnson.
