Higgins, Bengals ‘not close’ on contract extension, per team beat reporter
CINCINNATI (WXIX/Enquirer) - Tee Higgins and the Cincinnati Bengals are not close on a contract extension, the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Kelsey Conway reported Friday citing a source with knowledge of the situation.
Conway’s report comes less than 24 hours after sources confirmed that Joe Burrow and the Bengals reached an agreement on a record-setting contract.
The goal, pertaining to Burrow, was to get a deal done before Sunday’s regular season opener in Cleveland.
That timeline does not appear to be happening for Higgins, according to Conway.
“Unless something ‘shocking’ happens in next 24 hours, a long-term extension is not expected to happen before Sunday,” Conway wrote on the social media platform X.
