Bates building towards big second season

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Jessie Bates III exceeded expectations as a rookie with the Cincinnati Bengals, but now he’s focused on bigger and better things in year two.

Bates, a Snider graduate, led the Bengals with 109 tackles last season, but believes he can take his game to a higher level this year.

“The grin hasn’t changed for me,” Bates said. “I feel like there’s still a lot that I can do, there’s a lot of room for me to improve still.”
