The Bengals are on board.

According to Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals will make Friday a paid holiday to honor Juneteenth.

The holiday commemorates the ending of slavery in the United States, with the date tied to Union soldiers bringing the word to Texas after the end of the Civil War.

The NFL announced last week that league offices would be closed, and many other teams have followed suit.
