The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t exactly been known as one of the NFL’s first-class organizations. But based on a story shared by former Bengals receiver, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, the franchise has at least improved in recent years.
In an appearance with Colin Cowherd Tuesday, Houshmandzadeh said, “The year before I got to the Bengals, Willie Anderson was telling me, they didn’t even have jockstraps. They would buy used ones and throw them in the middle of the locker room and say, ‘Here you go!'”
That’s equal parts disturbing and hilarious.
Let’s just hope the Bengals at least had a working washer and dryer during those dark ages.
