The Bengals opted to let former first-round cornerback William Jackson leave in free agency, and Jackson is happy to be gone.
Appearing on 106.7 The Fan with Brian Mitchell and JP Finlay, Jackson called it a “blessing” to be out.
“Cincinnati, they got some crude fans, man. You know misery loves company. When nothing (is) going good, everybody’s not doing any good,” Jackson said. “Washington has been nothing but supportive since Day 1. The Bengals, on the other hand, them dudes – they wonder why they’re not winning. I’m happy I’m out of that thing man. It’s a blessing to get away and I wish them the best, but Washington – let’s go from here.”
Jackson also mentioned earlier in the interview that Cincinnati doesn’t get much national spotlight and that’s a reason why most fans don’t know much about him.
He signed a three-year, $42 million deal in free agency with Washington. The Bengals ended up signing two cornerbacks once Jackson left, adding Mike Hilton and Chidobe Awuzie.
