Cincinnati Bengals Interested in New England Patriots Cornerback JC Jackson

CINCINNATI – The Bengals are interested in signing Patriots cornerback JC Jackson according to NFL insider Jordan Schultz.

New England didn’t place the franchise tag on the 26-year-old prior to Tuesday’s 4 pm ET deadline.

The Chargers, 49ers and Dolphins are also interested in him according to the report.

Jackson had 58 tackles and eight interceptions last season. He has 17 interceptions combined over the past two seasons.

The Bengals have taken big swings on defensive players in each of the past two offseasons. First, they signed DJ Reader to a four-year, $ 53 million deal in the spring of 2020. Then, they followed that up by inking Trey Hendrickson to a four-year, $ 60 million contract last March.
