UNBELIEVABLE: Bengals WR Tee Higgins deal collapse and…

Negotiating with the Cincinnati Bengals to move players they value is a famously tough task. That certainly held true for Tee Higgins the previous year.

However, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, they are at least open to hearing what other teams have to offer for the 25-year-old wide receiver at this point because they don’t have any truly strong options. The reporter on SportsCenter stated the following:

“Tee Higgins wishes to leave,” Fowler remarked. “The trade request was made by him. A few interested teams that I spoke with think the Bengals are at least open to listening. That represents a slight softening from what they might have done a year ago when they were certain not to trade him.

Teams will therefore attempt to coax him out. New England has been receiving assistance on a high level. Maybe they try to acquire Higgins by giving up a Day 2 choice.

With one month till the NFL Draft, this report is released. You have to assume at this point that the Bengals will allow Higgins to leave for even a second-round pick instead of taking the chance that all they’ll get in return for him when he inevitably leaves is a compensatory pick.
