Bengals rookie Andrei Iosivas studying with Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins
Bengals rookie Andrei Iosivas is making the most of his situation. Cincinnati Bengals rookie wideout Andrei Iosivas has been impressing fans since arriving in the mid-rounds of the draft, studying with Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. He is being compared to Chase and Higgins' advice as they work together. Coach Jeff Foxman has told Iosiva to model his game more off Higgins' than Chase, but he is still getting plenty of nice things to say about him. Early reviews from rookie camp and workouts suggest he is doing all the right things that will enable him to make the roster, if not have a quick impact.

Cincinnati Bengals fans were understandably hyped about the edition of Princeton wideout Andrei Iosivas in the mid-rounds of the draft given some of his stunning measurables and high upside.
Iosivas has done nothing but impress folks in the building since arriving, either, paying special attention especially to what Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins tell him as they work together.
“I really take the advice of Ja’Marr and Tee very seriously and critique myself very hard,” Iosivas said, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “Every time I’m watching film, I see what Tee tells me and try to replicate it the next day or that practice.”
Given his frame and game, coaches have told Iosivas to model his game more off Higgins’ than Chase, but he’s still got plenty of nice things to say about No. 1: “He’s really nice. They’ve both taken me under their wing.”
Like fellow rookie wideout Charlie Jones, Iosivas will have to make his mark in more ways than one to make the final roster. But the early reviews from rookie camp and workouts suggest he’s doing all the right things that will enable him to make the roster, if not have a quick impact.
