NOTES: On Jan. 21, the Bengals selected 40 players in an expansion draft, taking five from each AFL team except Miami (the Dolphins were exempt because they had their inaugural season themselves just two years earlier in 1966). An asterisk (*) denotes a player who made the Bengals' all-time roster.
