Rams, Tyler Higbee agree to terms on four-year extension

On Thursday, the Rams agreed to terms with TE Tyler Higbee on a four-year extension that will keep him under contract through the 2023 season.

A former fourth-round pick, Higbee has played in all 48 regular season games and four postseason games since being drafted by Los Angeles in 2016. He has tallied 58 career receptions for 658 yards and four touchdowns along with 39 career starts.

Higbee is second key offensive contributor to agree to terms on an extension with the club in three days. QB Jared Goff did the same for a four-year extension through the 2024 season on Tuesday.

Higbee posted 24 receptions for 292 yards and two touchdowns in 2018. The tight end had four catches in the NFC Championship game, including one touchdown in the third quarter and two receptions during the game-winning drive in overtime. He fell one reception and three yards shy of matching his career highs in both categories for a single season, but his two scores set a new career high.
