3 free agent wide receivers the Tennessee Titans should target
3. Rashard Higgins
If the Titans are interested in an impact player who won’t break the bank, Rashard Higgins is a solid choice.
Higgins finished the 2020 season with 37 catches for 599 yards and 4 TD’s while playing in 13 games for the Cleveland Browns. For reference, Higgins would’ve been third on the Titans in receiving yards, behind only A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
Earlier I talked about players that might get cut for cap space, well Higgins has been more productive than the high-priced Adam Humphries and played for less than $1 million in 2020.
If Corey Davis indeed walks in free agency, a deep-threat like Higgins would be a valuable addition opposite A.J Brown. Spotrac projects Higgins to receive around $6 million per year, so he should be well within the Titans price range.
If there are any concerns with Higgins, it’s that he has not played a full season since 2016. His 599 yards in 2020 was also his career-high, but he’s spent his career behind players such as Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, among others.
Higgins wouldn’t be a home-run signing, but he’d be a quality player for an affordable price.
