  • Panthers' Rashard Higgins: Joining Panthers

    Higgins agreed to a one-year deal with the Panthers on Wednesday, Jake Trotter of reports.

    Higgins is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he caught 24 passes (on 47 targets) for 275 yards and a touchdown in 15 games for Cleveland. With the Panthers, the 27-year-old will look to secure the team's No. 3 wideout gig behind DJ Moore and Robby Anderson, a role that carries modest fantasy upside.

  • Browns' Rashard Higgins: Not expected back

    Higgins (illness) will not be re-signed by the Browns when he hits free agency, Jeff Howe and Zac Jackson of The Athletic report.

    Higgins, who sat out the final game of the season with an illness, had an uptick in usage over the final stretch of the season, but the Browns will not re-sign him for a third consecutive year. After a down season for the team's passing offense, Cleveland's decision-makers plan to revamp the receiving corps surrounding quarterback Baker Mayfield, including the possibility of parting with wide receiver Jarvis Landry. The Browns are assessing several free-agent and trade options outside the organization.

  • Browns' Rashard Higgins: Won't return Sunday

    Higgins (illness) will not return Sunday against the Bengals, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Higgins was active, but he never took the field Sunday. Anthony Schwartz and Ja'Marcus Bradley should continue to see extra snaps for the remainder of the game.

  • Browns' Rashard Higgins: Remains involved

    Higgins caught one of five targets for eight yards in Monday's 26-14 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Higgins' late-season revival continued, as the wide receiver has been targeted at least five times in each of the last three games. The poor catch rate Monday was more about beleaguered quarterback Baker Mayfield, who was inaccurate and hounded by the Steelers' defense, which had nine sacks and hit the QB another 11 times. It's unclear how the Browns will operate in their final game of the regular season next week against Cincinnati. There could be value in giving rookie Anthony Schwartz a greater role at the expense of Higgins, who becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2022.

  • Browns' Rashard Higgins: Paces receivers in loss

    Higgins caught five of six targets for 58 yards in Week 16's 24-22 loss to Green Bay on Saturday.

    Higgins led all of Cleveland players in receiving yards and was heavily involved in the passing attack for the second consecutive week. He had a 65 percent share of the snaps, behind Jarvis Landry and Donovan Peoples-Jones, and for the second straight week out-snapped rookie Anthony Schwartz. It was unclear if Higgins involvement in Week 15 was the result of a COVID-19 outbreak among the team's receiving options (wideouts and tight ends), but it appears he's reclaimed a role for himself. He's caught eight of 11 targets for 82 yards over the last two games.

  • Browns' Rashard Higgins: Moves up depth chart

    Higgins caught three of five targets for 24 yards in Monday's 16-14 loss to the Raiders.

    The Browns were missing key players due to an outbreak of COVID-19, which necessitated Higgins' return to a prominent role as a target. He was the second wideout behind Donovan Peoples-Jones and had a season-high 79 percent share of the offensive snaps. If Jarvis Landry, Austin Hooper and Kareem Hunt (ankle) come off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for next Sunday's road game in Green Bay, Higgins should return to a minor role.

  • Browns' Rashard Higgins: Browns-Raiders moved to Monday

    Higgins and the Browns will no longer play the Raiders on Saturday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Monday at 5 p.m. ET.

    Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Cleveland organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Browns will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Donovan Peoples-Jones, Higgins and Ja'Marcus Bradley are currently the top three available receivers on the roster heading into the Week 15 matchup, but all would be pushed down a spot in the pecking order if Jarvis Landry (illness) is able to clear all COVID-19-related protocols before Monday.
