  • Eagles and J. Landon Dickerson agree to a four-year contract extension

  • The Bengals franchise-tagged Tee Higgins last month, preventing him from reaching free agency. He is expected to earn $21.8 million this season on the tag.

    Higgins, 25, has 3,684 yards and 24 touchdowns in 58 career games with the Bengals. They drafted him in the second round out of Clemson in 2020, and since then he has formed a great relationship with quarterback Joe Burrow and fellow wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase.

    However, Higgins' 2023 season was not his best. He missed five games due to injury, limiting him to 42 receptions for 656 yards and 5 touchdowns – a sharp decline from his first three seasons, which were very productive. (For example, Higgins had 74 catches for 1,029 yards and seven touchdowns in 2022.)
