Wideout Rashard Higgins might remain in the Cleveland Browns jersey next season after all. Although Higgins seemed to be as good as gone, the reports say that Browns would be keen on bringing back the 25-year-old after all.
According to Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns recently told Higgins’ agent Michael Swensen that the team is still interested in the player but would only do the deal for the “right price.”
Higgins has finished his rookie deal and will become an unrestricted free agent in March. And while there is certainly a market for him, his value remains unclear. This is mostly due to a struggling season he had in 2019.
After racking up 39 receptions for 572 yards and four touchdowns in 2018, Rashard Higgins suddenly found himself out of then-Browns’ coach Freddie Kitchens’ plans. He only started one game and managed to catch four passes for 55 yards and one touchdown, while playing just 17 percent of snaps on offense.
Higgins, who was Cleveland’s fifth-round pick in 2016, has caught 76 passes for 1,016 yards seven TDs over the course of his career in NFL.
