Has Tee Higgins played his last snap for the Cincinnati Bengals?

The 24-year-old wide receiver is set to become a free agent in March. Cincinnati could sign him to a contract extension or use the franchise tag on him, resulting in a one-year, $21.7 million deal. It would also allow the Bengals more time to negotiate a long-term contract.

Joe Burrow has made it clear that he expects Higgins to return. Even head coach Zac Taylor stated it’s difficult to imagine Higgins playing for another team next season.

“It’s hard to imagine life without Tee Higgins,” Taylor said. “Those are all conversations we’ll continue to have upstairs. Tee and I talked and I have no information on that. Those are things that evolve. That’s what the next two months are for to get a chance to go in depth with the roster and survey the future. I’m not trying to angle this any which way. That’s what we do and that’s Duke (Tobin) and all of them have been working on endlessly while we’re in season. Then I get caught up to speed and have those conversations. Tee is a big part of what we’re doing and it would be hard for him to imagine not being here.”

Higgins battled injuries this season, finishing with career-lows in receptions (42), yards (656) and receiving touchdowns (5). Despite the injuries, he remains a big part of the Bengals’ offense.
