Speaking to the media Wednesday, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was asked about not having WR Rashard Higgins play offense against the Bengals and he said: "We're trying to play the players that give us the best chance of winning, and that's strictly a week-to-week thing."
Higgins was thought to be the No. 3 receiver in Cleveland after the release of Antonio Callaway, but he played just 28 snaps in Week 13 against the Steelers and was an afterthought in Week 14. This isn't a resounding quote from the head coach either. He's buried behind Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry and the league's leading rusher, Nick Chubb. Higgins can safely sit on the waiver wire.
