Former WR Hollywood Rashard Higgins, LB Christian Kirksey Retiring As Browns


Well, it’s time for two incredible players to bow out and retire as members of the Cleveland Browns. Both WR Rashard Higgins and LB Christian Kirksey are going to be signing one-day contracts as Browns to retire from the NFL.

This via NEWS 5 in Cleveland:

Higgins, better known by the nickname “Hollywood,” was selected by the Browns in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He played six seasons (2016-21) in Cleveland, appearing in 82 games and recording 137 receptions for 1,890 yards with 12 touchdowns.

A third-round selection in 2014, Kirksey played six seasons (2014-19) with the Browns. During that time, he appeared in 73 games and registered 463 tackles, 11.5 sacks, two interceptions, 16 passes defended, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He served as a captain in each of his final three seasons with the Browns.

Via Spectrum: “We are thrilled that Rashard and Christian wanted to come back and retire as Cleveland Browns,” said JW Johnson, executive vice president of the Cleveland Browns. “Both players obviously made an impact on the field, but they each made a lasting impression in the Cleveland community as well. It’s a testament to who they are as individuals, and we are honored to have them retire as part of our Browns family.”

Higgins did sign a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers back in 2022 where he did not play. Kirksey did play for Green Bay in 2020 and Houston in 2021-22.

These two were iconic members of the Browns for all of the seasons played in this city and were certainly missed by fans!
