Tee Higgins Signs His Franchise Tender

Saturday, June 15, 2:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins signed his franchise tender on Saturday, according to a source. By signing his tender, Higgins is now expected to be at training camp next month. A long-term deal for Higgins is considered a long shot at this point, especially since with WR1 Ja'Marr Chase has only two years remaining on his current deal. The 25-year-old Higgins will make $21.8 million in the franchise tag in 2024 before becoming a free agent next March. The former second-rounder (33rd overall) in 2020 out of Clemson struggled with injuries in his fourth NFL season in 2023, playing in only 12 games and catching 42 passes for a career-low 656 yards and five touchdowns. With better health for himself and quarterback Joe Burrow (wrist), Higgins should be able to bounce back in a contract year and would be a fine target as a high-end WR3/low-end WR2.

Brandon Aiyuk News

Brandon Aiyuk Making News With Latest Social Media Post

Sunday, July 7, 9:16 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk posted a picture of a Washington Commanders' practice session on the social media platform TikTok. The wideout reportedly wants to remain in San Francisco, although he wants to be paid. However, if both sides can't reach an agreement on a new deal, Aiyuk has been vocal about his desire to play in Washington or Pittsburgh. This isn't the first time he has used social media to keep himself in the news. But considering Aiyuk amassed 1,342 receiving yards and seven touchdowns off 75 catches in 2023-24, his fantasy stock is higher than ever. It could increase even more with a move to the Steelers or Commanders, where he would likely be considered the No. 1 wideout on the depth chart.
