It’s finally over.

Dont’a Hightower has agreed to terms to remain with the New England Patriots per Adam Schefter. It became obvious as this went along that he was just out there trying to drive up the price because the market wasn’t what he thought it would be a month ago. Teams got wise to his game and were pulling offers over the last couple of days.

It turned out that the Titans really weren’t ever that interested in him. I constantly refreshed Twitter for a couple of days for nothing. Such is life....

The Patriots have really loaded up during this free agency period. That isn’t normally how they operate, which leads me to believe that Bill Belichick is loading up to leave when Tom Brady retires in a couple of years. That is just speculation on my part, but they feel like a team that is loading up for a 2 year run.
