According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Bengals placed the franchise tag on the wide receiver Monday morning, keeping him on a one-year deal.

The two sides can still negotiate a long-term extension until the deadline this summer.

Limited to 12 games due to injury last season, Higgins had 42 catches for 656 yards and five touchdowns. He topped the 1,000-yard in 2022 and 2021 after finishing with 908 yards as a rookie in 2020.
