What Cincinnati Bengal jerseys should fans be wearing this season? If you live outside of greater Cincinnati, there aren't many common, household names on the Bengal roster this fall—but, for fans ready to sport Bengal gear, there are a few player names that should be gracing the backs of those fan jerseys.
These past Bengal draft picks all have the potential to bring the glory days back to Paul Brown Stadium:
Andy Dalton(notes), #14. Stepping in as Carson Palmer's(notes) replacement in 2011, rookie Andy Dalton has settled into the role of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback. The fiery redhead is leading the offensive youth movement for the Bengals. While Dalton's potential was doubted by critics early on, he managed to post some early wins and may be a second-round draft pick gem. Dalton is earning fan respect and reviving life in "The Jungle." Fans should have no difficulty finding an Andy Dalton #14 jersey or Dalton scrimmage T-shirt.

A.J. Green(notes), #18. Another rookie making a name for himself in Cincinnati is wide receiver A.J. Green. Size, speed and acrobatic catches make Green a fan favorite. Green gives fans a lot to be hopeful for—he leads rookies in touchdowns, receptions and receiving yards through the early 2011 season and is expected to be one of Dalton's primary competitors for Rookie of the Year honors. Both A.J. Green #18, jerseys and A.J. Green scrimmage T-shirts are available in sporting goods shops and online.
Leon Hall(notes), #29. Is Hall one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL? He led the Bengals in interceptions from 2007-2010. Bengal fans have come to expect Hall to make things happen for the defense-and since the durable Hall has played in every game through his first four seasons, fans are becoming familiar with Bengal jersey #29. A replica Leon Hall jersey is a bit harder to find than Dalton's or Green's—but, is available online.
Andrew Whitworth(notes), #77. Andrew Whitworth has not only served the Bengals at left tackle, but as team captain as well. Since Whitworth joined the Bengals in 2006, he has positioned himself as a team leader and asset to the Bengal offense. Having trouble tracking down a Whitworth jersey?

Jermaine Gresham(notes), #84. Cincinnati Bengal tight end Gresham offers young Andy Dalton a promising target on offense. The 6-foot-5-inch 260-pound Gresham has the potential to be the Bengal's best pass receiving tight end since Bob Trumpy. An authentic replica Jermaine Gresham jersey or scrimmage shirt are readily available online and in sports shops.
