William Jackson III, the Bengals’ first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, who spent his first four seasons in the National Football League in Cincinnati before hitting a three-year deal with the Washington Football team earlier this month, had less-than-compliments to say about his previous employer on 106.7 The Fan’s BMitch & Finlay.
“Cincinnati, they have some big fans, man. They know that misery loves society. When nothing goes well, everyone does no good,” Jackson said on the show. “(WFT) hasn’t done anything but support since Day 1. The Bengals, on the other hand, are boys – they wonder why they’re not winning. I’m glad I’m not into this man. It’s a blessing for Go Away and I wish you all the best, but Washington – let’s go from here. “
Jackson played 59 games in his four seasons with the Bengals, with three interceptions, 41 defended passes and a pick-six in his first season after missing his rookie season with a torn pectoral muscle.
Enquirer’s Tyler Dragon previously reported that there was no chance the Bengals would sign Jackson again after signing former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Mike Hilton and former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Chidobe Awuzie .
Several NFL teams reportedly made inquiries about Jackson before trading closes in 2019.
