CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals owner Mike Brown has changed his mind and is finally willing to honor some of the franchise's best players at a stadium where there is virtually no trace of the past.
Brown says he's never been nostalgic and doesn't care for paying tribute to past stars. The only nod to the Bengals' history at Paul Brown Stadium is that it's named after his father, something that left him with mixed feelings. There is no Bengals Hall of Fame.
Other NFL teams have rings of honor or statues honoring figures from the past.
During the team's annual training camp luncheon on Tuesday, Brown said the team is considering ways to recognize previous players at the stadium.
