William Jackson's 5th-Year Contract Option Exercised by Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals announced they have picked up the fifth-year contract option for cornerback William Jackson, keeping him with the team through the 2020 season. The 26-year-old recorded 41 tackles and 13 passes defensed while starting all 16 games in 2018. He will make the average of the third- through 25th-highest salaries among cornerbacks in 2020. Selected with the No. 24 pick in the 2016 draft out of Houston, Jackson missed his entire rookie season due to a torn pectoral. He returned in 2017 but only started five games before emerging as a solid starter last season. This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.
