The Cincinnati Bengals have a ton of excitement surrounding them as they head into the 2021 season. Joe Burrow is nearing 100% in his injury recovery, and the team used their top NFL Draft pick to reunite him with future star wideout Ja'Marr Chase.

There's a lot of hype regarding the Bengals' receiving corps now that Chase is in town. Yet it was another pass-catcher that stole the spotlight at minicamp.

It's fellow wideout Tee Higgins that made an impression at Cincinnati's recent workouts. Obviously it's not much of a "surprise" for the team's leading receiver in 2020 to look good in minicamp, but Higgins has gone under the radar with Chase garnering much of the attention. Higgins has reportedly impressed his coaches and teammates with his physical development this offseason.

It's great to hear Higgins is making sure he fills out his impressive 6-foot-4 frame. Gaining even more of a physical edge will be huge as the second-year wideout looks to improve on a 2020 campaign where he paced the team in receiving yards (908) and TDs (6) while hauling in 67 catches.

A full offseason of work and chemistry development with Burrow could help Higgins hit the next level in 2021.
