ESPN provides best trade fit for WR Tee Higgins

ESPN provides best trade fit for WR Tee Higgins

Could Higgins wind up out West if the Bengals opt to trade him?

With wide receiver Tee Higgins not yet signing his franchise tag for the 2024 season and having formally requested a trade, there’s a slim chance the Cincinnati Bengals will have no choice but to move on from the 25-year-old star.

If the Bengals do trade him, several suitors would likely line up, but ESPN’s Matt Bowen believes that one team in the AFC West makes the most sense.

That team: the Los Angeles Chargers.

“The Chargers drafted rookie receiver Ladd McConkey, who has the route traits to...

Bates is all for the star receiver balling out in 2024

The Cincinnati Bengals are learning to juggle many contract situations.

With more high-profile players on the roster than potentially ever before, the team is having to make difficult decisions, and one of those is centered around Tee Higgins, the team’s second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Higgins has erupted as one of the best receivers in the NFL, and he wants to be paid like it.

The Bengals, with players like Ja’Marr Chase and company to keep in mind when it comes to utilizing their cap space, used...

Tuesday Trenches: What has to go right?

Tuesday Trenches: What has to go right?

It can’t just be avoiding mistakes. There has to be more to it.

The Cincinnati Bengals are in a good position. They have a coach that can help them win the postseason. On top of that, they have a top-tier defensive coordinator, the best wide receiver room in the NFL, and, most importantly, have a truly elite franchise quarterback.

The Bengals have had some good luck over the last few years. They went to two consecutive AFC Championship games and one Super Bowl. They’ve also had some bad injury luck.

We all know what can go wrong for the Bengals,...

Bengals earn high mark in PFF’s offseason grades

A grade worth smiling for.

Everyone knew this was going to be one of the most important offseasons in Bengals history. That’s typically going to be the case when you’ve got an NFL team that’s just a few pieces away from being a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

Sure, the team won five playoff games from 2021-22 and came close to winning Super Bowl LVI, but the 2023 season was a challenging one for Cincinnati. Even when Joe Burrow was healthy, this team clearly had its flaws, namely on defense, while the offensive line was still a major question mark.

Oh,...

Tee Higgins franchise tag update

Tee Higgins franchise tag update

Are the Bengals and Higgins headed for a holdout?

The Cincinnati Bengals may hold the rights to Tee Higgins, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be joining the team anytime soon.

After placing the franchise tag on Higgins this offseason, he eventually requested a trade, though he seemingly came to the conclusion that he’ll be playing for the Bengals in 2024.

However, it looks like Higgins and his agent are going to wait a bit until he reports to the team.

Per Adam Schefter, Higgins is not planning to sign his franchise tag tender in time to report for next week’s...

Assessing the value the Bengals got in drafting Matt Lee

Is Matt Lee the center of the future for the Bengals?

The Cincinnati Bengals waited surprisingly long to take an interior offensive lineman in this year’s NFL Draft, but they still got a good one on Day 3.

With their final selection, the 237th overall pick, the Bengals took Miami Hurricanes center Matt Lee.

The 6-foot-4, 301-pound native of Florida began his college career at UCF, where he spent four seasons before making his way to the ACC. In the 2023 season, Lee started 12 games at center and earned a 79.0 Pro Football Focus grade. In 434 pass-blocking snaps,...
