Before Chris Collinsworth was a nationally known football commentator, he was an NFL wide receiver, and a good one. Collinsworth played eight seasons in the NFL - all for the Cincinnati Bengals - catching 417 passes for 6,698 yards and 36 touchdowns, He played in three Pro Bowls. The black jersey has "80" on the back, in white with red trim. The sleeves have "80" in white with red trim. The front also has "80" in white with red trim. The back has "Collinsworth" in white lettering with red trim. The jersey is all original; the lettering and numbering are screened on. The name plate is sewn on back. Russell size "44" tagging and supplemental Koch Sporting Goods tag. The jersey exhibits nice use, with scrapes, burns, paint transfers and a few unrepaired rips in the fabric. Collinsworth enjoys his second career as a television commentator. He explains," It's nice to know there's a way to pay the bills other than third-and-eight and getting your bell rung." The Bengals are gathering increased attention after appearing in this season's Super Bowl, and they could remain a strong team in the future. This is an opportunity for a game worn Bengals' jersey worn by a nationally followed television commentator back when he was earning his living on the field.
