Bengals WR Tee Higgins closing in on rookie record

Wide receiver Tee Higgins enters the Ravens game Sunday needing only one catch to break Cris Collinsworth's club record for most receptions by a Bengals rookie. Higgins, the Bengals' second round draft pick,  has 67 receptions.

Wide receiver Tee Higgins is on the cusp of etching his name at the top of the Cincinnati Bengals’ record book.

Higgins has 67 catches this season. The 2020 second-round pick enters  the season finale against the Baltimore Ravens  tied with former Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth for most receptions by a Bengals rookie.

Higgins fully expects to break the rookie record this Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

“It feels good to have a chance to break it in the next game,” Higgins said. “It’s a good thing to have my name in the history books here in Cincinnati.”

Higgins’ 67 catches leads all AFC rookies, and ranks third among rookie wide receivers this year. The 6-foot-4 wideout is also on the verge of eclipsing 1,000 yards receiving. Higgins heads into Week 17 having tallied 908 receiving yards, which also leads all AFC rookies. Reaching 1,000 yards receiving is a goal Higgins had for himself entering his rookie season.
