Rashard Higgins would be a solid receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
You might remember wide receiver Rashard Higgins was on the wrong side of a helmet-to-helmet hit that wasn’t flagged in the Browns Divisional Round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Had safety Daniel Sorensen gotten the penalty flag, the Browns would’ve gotten a fresh set of downs and would’ve had a chance of advancing to the AFC Championship.
Higgins is set to hit the open market this offseason and although he’s not a top-notch wide receiver, he was a reliable one in Cleveland last season, when he hauled 37 receptions for 599 yards and four touchdowns. Originally a fifth-round selection in 2016’s draft, it’s not the first time the Colorado State product has stepped up when he’s had his number called, as he finished the 2018 season with 39 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns.
Wide receiver Keelan Cole is set to become a free agent, one the Jaguars should re-sign, but if they are unable to bring him back, they should have a fallback and Higgins should provide value at an affordable rate in the open market.
