According to Ian Rapoport, Jackson’s contract is a three-year contract worth $42 million and includes $26 million guaranteed.
Jackson was clearly one of the top cornerbacks available this year and there was even some talk a few weeks back that he could be a franchise tag candidate.
However, the Bengals declined to use the tag and let him hit the open market.
Jackson, 27, 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.
Jackson was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
