Source – Bengals Pro Bowl DE Trey Hendrickson requests trade

Cincinnati Bengals three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Trey Hendrickson has requested to be traded, a league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Hendrickson, who is due to make $15 million this season, is looking for more long-term security than Cincinnati has been willing to offer, the source said. He is under contract through the 2025 season.

The Bengals, however, are not interested in trading their star pass-rusher, Schefter reports.

Hendrickson set a career high with 17.5 sacks last season and has 39.5 sacks in his three seasons with the Bengals. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons.

Hendrickson is the second star player to have requested a trade from the Bengals this offseason. Wide receiver Tee Higgins, who received the franchise tag from the team, requested to be traded in March. However, he said earlier this month that he anticipated playing for the Bengals this season.
