Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver Tee Higgins remains a top trade candidate as offseason training camp draws closer.

Before the 2024 NFL Draft last month, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Tee Higgins and star pass-rusher Trey Hendrickson both requested trades. Though Cincinnati is keen on keeping both, de facto GM Duke Tobin is always just one can’t-refuse offer away from signing off on a move.

Higgins was assigned the franchise tag after completing his four-year rookie contract. Since a long-term extension already feels unlikely, the Bengals could easily decide to trade Higgins rather than lose him for nothing in free agency next year.

One team that stands out as a logical landing spot for Tee Higgins is the Denver Broncos. They are in the early stages of a giant rebuild after this offseason’s departures of Russell Wilson, Jerry Jeudy, and Justin Simmons, but Higgins can still be part of the long-term picture in Mile High City.


Denver used the No. 12 pick of 2024 on Oregon quarterback Bo Nix. But outside of one-time 1,000-yard receiver Courtland Sutton, the Broncos don’t have any proven playmakers to help Nix in the short-term future.

A two-time 1,000-yard receiver, Tee Higgins could easily flourish as the WR1 in Denver after playing second-fiddle to Ja’Marr Chase in Cincinnati for three years. And at just 25 years of age, Higgins can be a long-term piece of the puzzle in Denver.

What Broncos Should Offer Bengals For Tee Higgins

The Broncos need to keep their early-round picks after selling the farm for Russell Wilson in a trade that completely backfired.

Denver should offer their 2025 third-round draft choice and a 2026 fourth-round pick to Cincinnati for Higgins. That would be a nice return for the big-bodied receiver, especially considering that the Bengals have a nice track record of finding hidden gems in the later rounds of the draft.

Saints Send Superstar CB Marshon Lattimore To AFC Powerhouse In Blockbuster Trade Proposal That Would Drastically Shake Up The Super Bowl Race

A massive trade proposal has the New Orleans Saints sending superstar cornerback Marshon Lattimore to a top AFC Super Bowl contender.

Marshon Lattimore has been mentioned in trade rumors throughout the offseason, even though the Saints haven’t at all indicated that they’re shopping the four-time Pro Bowler. But of course, GM Mickey Loomis just might be willing to part with his star player if the right trade offer comes along.

Bleacher Report’s Alex Kay proposed five blockbuster trade ideas that should occur before the 2024 NFL season starts. One of Kay’s proposals has the Saints dealing Lattimore to the Houston Texans in exchanged for a 2025 third-round pick:

“If Lattimore is made available, expect the Houston Texans to come calling.

The Texans have spent the offseason loading up on veterans to make a deep run following last year’s surprise trip to the Divisional round. After unearthing a franchise quarterback in C.J. Stroud, Houston’s brass is clearly trying to maximize the team’s Super Bowl chances by bringing in pricy pieces the team can only afford while Stroud is locked into a cheap rookie scale contract…

Lattimore makes for an ideal starter across from Derek Stingley Jr., giving Houston one of the best cornerback tandems in football while second-round rookie Kamari Lassiter gets brought up to speed.”

The Saints have been stuck in a tough cap situation for numerous years, but they’re clearly against the idea of rebuilding. The free agent signing of Chase Young, coupled with the 2024 first-round pick of plug-and-play offensive tackle Taliese Fuaga, are clear-cut indicators that New Orleans wants to compete in 2024.

Lattimore has been one of football’s best shutdown corners since his 2017 rookie year, racking up 86 pass defenses, five forced fumbles and 15 interceptions. Of course, he’s also a key reason why New Orleans consistently churns out a top-10 defense, so it’ll take a pretty penny for Loomis to part with him.

Marshon Lattimore Makes Sense For Houston

The Texans already have two young cornerstones on defense in Derek Stingley Jr. and Will Anderson Jr. GM Nick Caserio also added veterans Denico Autry and Danielle Hunter in free agency to bolster an already stout defense.

But a player like Lattimore could also be the final piece that helps Houston get over the top in the gauntlet that is the AFC. A Lattimore-Stingley cornerback tandem would be problematic for the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and Trevor Lawrence in the AFC.

So if the Saints are listening to offers for Lattimore, Houston should definitely place a call.
