William Jackson III becoming lockdown cornerback for Bengals


The Bengals will finish with another losing season, shrouded in coaching rumors and a pile of question marks.

It’s unclear if the Bengals will decide to rebuild or retool under a new coaching staff. Either way, they have a pillar in the secondary. Jackson is a pretty nice start.
