Trey Hendrickson praised by former Super Bowl champion

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Trey Hendrickson has had two great seasons with the team since signing with them in 2021.

On “Good Morning Football,” former Super Bowl champion Jason McCourty said Hendrickson is his choice for a defensive lineman who deserves more praise.

McCourty noted that Hendrickson has 35.5 sacks over the last three seasons, a total behind only Myles Garrett, T.J. Watt and Haason Reddick. And 22 of those have come in his two seasons with the Bengals. He has 66 total tackles in his time in Cincinnati.

“He’s been a big reason why Cincinnati’s been able to make a huge jump,” said McCourty, who played 13 seasons in the NFL and won a ring with the New England Patriots. “Played in a Super Bowl a year ago, competing last year in the AFC championship game. So I’m looking forward to him continuing to ball out there, and more people need to be talking about Trey Hendrickson on the Cincinnati Bengals.”

Hendrickson is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl selections and has earned high praise from McCourty, who believes he deserves a lot more.
