Best Answer

I don't know that history has recorded that as the Bengals began play in 1968, 20 years or so after Jackie Robinson (1947) began playing in MLB and Kenny Washington (1946) began playing in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams.

Some of the African-American players on the 1968 Bengals were running backs Paul Robinson and Essex Johnson, wide receivers Andre White and Warren McVea, defensive backs Jess Phillips, Charlie King, and Lonnie Wright, offensive tackle Ernie Wright, linebackers Al Beauchamp and Frank Buncom, and defensive linemen Andy Rice and Harry Gunner.
