Joe Burrow got his deal. Tee Higgins might not get a deal any time soon. But that didn’t stop the big receiver from expressing his excitement about his quarterback being in Cincinnati for years to come.

Higgins called the money “life-changing” and joked that Burrow could “buy an island if he wants to.”

Make sure to check out Higgins’ recent interview with Pacman Jones:

And Sam Hubbard, who received a four-year contract extension two years ago, shared that the entire locker room is “very excited” after the $275 million deal was finalized. He also said that “everybody’s happy” and that “the future’s secure.”

So there are good vibes all around, as this is something Burrow’s teammates knew was going to happen and needed to happen.
