Officially Official

Update: Contract details

The Washington Football Team has made their second big move in free agency tonight. Cincinnati Bengals CB William Jackson III will reportedly be signed to a 3-year deal worth around $14 million per year when the new league year starts tomorrow. Washington lost CB Ronald Darby in free agency yesterday after he agreed to a 3-year, $10m/year deal with the Denver Broncos.

Washington will pair Jackson with last year's big signing in the secondary Kendall Fuller(4-year, $40 million). Fabian Moreau, a 3rd round pick in 2017, is also expected to leave in free agency.

William Jackson III was the 24th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. He missed his rookie season with the Cincinnati Bengals due to a torn pec. The next 4 years he started at least 14 games every season.
