The Facts: The Browns made it clear that they want to keep Higgins in Cleveland by opening up talks about a contract extension, but those talks haven’t borne fruit so they took a step toward ensuring his 2019 return in the interim. The team announced that they have tendered Higgins as a restricted free agent. The team did not announce the level of the tender.
Diehards Line:Higgins caught 39 passes for 572 yards and four touchdowns during the 2018 season. He joined the Browns as a fifth-round pick in 2016 and could be in line for a significant role alongside Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway.
