One offseason move for each AFC team: Bengals must keep Tee Higgins; time for Texans to spend
Letting a pivotal offensive cog walk without getting anything in return makes no sense, especially considering the Bengals are projected to have sufficient cap space that they could end up signing enough players to prevent them from being awarded a compensatory pick for losing Higgins. Instead, Cincinnati could use that short-term space to ensure Higgins doesn't hit the open market -- where he'd probably see upwards of $25 million per year as his new team's No. 1 wideout -- in 2024.
