Bengals Fan of the Year throws sly dig at NFL with epic coin flip move during draft announcement

Phil Amrein, the Cincinnati Bengals fan of the year, pulled the team’s leg during yesterday’s hectic and thrilling NFL draft program as he revealed the team’s fourth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Introducing the Bengals Fan of the Year

He has almost 30 years as a season ticket holder. The man is such a devoted Bengals supporter that he hosts a tailgate for each home game. By inviting other Bengals fans and Season Ticket Holders to his home, he used to organize a different event called “Bengalfest.”

How did the Bengals’ biggest fan make the draft program a more thrilling occasion?

Amrein, the Bengals’ fan of the year, had the opportunity to reveal the team’s 2023 draft pick on Saturday. Phil began by thanking the NFL, the Cincinnati Bengals, and his wife for giving him the chance on his first appearance on such a large stage.

Just after that, the biggest fan staged a mock coin flip prior to the announcement in order to heighten the nervousness and anticipation of the occasion. He poked fun at the NFL’s expenses through the mock coin clip.

“It’s heads. AFC pack your bags, you’re coming to the city by the river. Who They. And this next gentlemen is going to get us there,” he said after the mock coin clip.

The team had been in need of an alternative wide receiver and returner, and they ultimately found one after they selected Purdue wide receiver Charlie Jones in the fourth round of the NFL Draft as the 131st overall pick.

He is the Bengals’ first experienced player selection since running back Chris Evans, according to the team’s perspective. Evans was selected in the sixth round in 2021.

The Cincinnati team strengthened their offensive line by adding a veteran player through the draft who contributed to the league with 110 catches the previous season. Jones hauled in 110 catches and scored 12 touchdowns, and stamped his name in the history of his college football.

The 5-foot-11 also came with 840 yards through eight games for Purdue. In addition, with 9.0 receptions per game on average, the 24-year-old is second in the country.

The Bengals made an excellent choice in selecting the former Purdue wide receiver ahead of this season. According to his past performance at school and university, the young star could be a valuable player for the team sometime in the future.
