BEREA, Ohio — After a lot of uncertainty, the Cleveland Browns have made a decision and will resign wide receiver Rashard “Hollywood” Higgins to a one-year deal, he confirmed on Twitter.

The one-year deal is apparently worth $910,000 dollars. Higgins, wanting to stay in Cleveland, turned down more money from other teams.

Higgins developed undeniable chemistry with quarterback Baker Mayfield in 2018. The wide receiver caught 73.5% of his targets for 572 yards and four touchdowns.

Last season, however, fans were left scratching their heads at the sudden disappearance of Higgins after he suffered a knee injury in the first week of the season. Although a full participant in practices, then head coach Freddie Kitchens limited his playing time.

Higgins only played in 10 games and was targeted just 11 times last season.

With Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry leading the wide receiver room, Higgins will compete for the third wide receiver spot against recently drafted receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones as well as KhaDarel Hodge, D.J. Montgomery, Taywan Taylor, Damion Ratley JoJo Natson, and J'Mon Moore.
