The Cincinnati Bengals are likely to be without one of their top players for their upcoming organized team activities (OTA) program.

Tee Higgins received a franchise tag from the Bengals this offseason. However, he is unhappy with the team and has not yet signed his tender. Until he does, he will not be allowed to join the team.

Higgins has been requesting a trade from the Bengals, though the team has not honored it. He and the team have until July 15 to work out a contract extension. If they do not agree to one, then he will have the choice of either signing his 1-year tender with Cincinnati or sitting out the season.

Higgins had 42 catches for 656 yards and 5 touchdowns in 12 games last season. The former No. 33 overall draft pick has surpassed 1,000 yards receiving twice in four years.
