26. Jim Breech

Jim Breech had the honor of being a select group of Kickers to be chosen in the NFL Draft when the Oakland Raiders took him in the Eighth Round of the 1979 Draft. His tenure in Oakland was short-lived as the Raiders signed Chris Bahr, and cut Breech.  The Bengals would be Breech's landing place, and as of this writing, he has been the most productive Kicker in franchise history.

Breech was Cincinnati’s Kicker until he retired in 1992.  The former California Golden Bear is one of the few players who was a member of both AFC Championship Teams (1981 & 1988), and he might never have been a Pro Bowl Selection, but he is the Bengals’ all-time leading scorer. 

Over his Bengals career, Breech finished in the top ten in Points and Field Goal Percentage five times, and in 1988 he was the league-leader in Extra Points Made.
