Bengals fans debate Tee Higgins’ future with team after franchise tag news

The Cincinnati Bengals using a franchise tag on wide receiver Tee Higgins was expected.

So was the ensuing debate.

With Higgins’ tag coming in at $21.8 million and the Bengals having until the summer to work out an extension with him, fans have wondered what the future might hold for both parties.

For some, getting at least one more year of Higgins alongside Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase is a no-brainer of a move. Some want an extension. But for others, the tag-and-trade route makes sense out of the concern that this will turn into another Jessie Bates situation for the Bengals.

Here’s a look at some of the debate and best reactions in the wake of the news the Bengals informed Higgins of the tag.
