Albert Breer of the NFL Network is reporting that the Titans are out of it on Dont’a Hightower....for now....
Titans are out of it, for now. Up to Hightower to see if he can beat Pats' price. https://t.co/B6MscJl1KX— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 13, 2017
Of course he just had to put the “for now” in there. We have long suspected that Hightower is just stringing everyone along to get a better offer from the Patriots. This doesn’t necessarily confirm that, buuuut it kind of confirms that.
I am done with the daily Hightower stuff now. There is no reason to keep going with a daily update from here. We will put up a post when he eventually agrees to terms with the Patriots. In fact, I already have it written and ready to go.
If you need something to help you feel better about this, read this from a guy who used to write here on MCM (hey, I said the same thing about Gunnels on Saturday and it got him to write something. Can it work again?)
Dont'a Hightower ranks 5th on his team - and 259th in NFL - in tackles (31). Good player, but he's a role player, not a foundational piece.— Superhorn (@Super_Horn) March 13, 2017
