Higgins doesn’t want to be compared to the colorful Ochocinco
CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins changed his mind: It will be the last season that he wears the number 85.
Initially, Higgins pointed to Pro Football Focus ‘Fantasy Football Podcast’, which will change to five, your college number, if you score 10 times this season. However, he changed on Thursday and said he will no longer wear it in large part because of who used that number for the Bengals: Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.
“I keep seeing in Twitter, ‘Ochocienco 2.0’ ”, complained Higgins. “I don’t want to be a 2.0. It is not against Chad. He’s a great receiver, and that. I just don’t want to be a 2.0 for me. I want to be Tee Higgins, 1.0, No. 5 “.
Johnson was one of the most colorful and prolific players in team history. In addition to having legally changed his name to Ochocinco at some point and being known for his scoring celebrations, he also leads the franchise in many categories, including receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns.
Higgins said he didn’t want changing the number to be a big deal, and plans to have a great second season using 85. The team’s best catcher in 2020, Higgins had four receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in Game 1 of the season. which beat the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Once Higgins changes his number, it can seriously be believed that he was the last player to wear the number 85.
“I think Chad did a lot for this organization,” Higgins said. “I have a good feeling that his number will be retired one day.”
