Jackson, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $9.7 million contract when the Bengals picked up Jackson’s fifth option that will pay him $9,954,000 for the 2020 season.

He finished his contract in Cincinnati and signed a three-year, $42 million deal with Washington back in March. 

In 2021, Jackson has appeared in 12 games and recorded 39 tackles, two interceptions and eight pass defenses.
