If we want to compete and I could chose I'd rather have HT than 12.5m more in cap space. But after Reiss' column a week ago it seems like retirement might actually be the odds on favorite.
Can you post a link to the article I missed it.

priorities:

1.) veteran qb - bb is 68 years old and chasing halas. He does not have time to buy any green bananas,

2.) veteran wr - preferably one to line up outside and with speed. Short two year deal.

3.) veteran wr part 2 - preferably a twitchy slot guy. Again a short deal.

4.) resign Andrews, guy, bethel, slater and maybe one or two others.

5.) use the draft to load up on stud defenders.
why restrict veteran receivers to short term deals

I'm cool with paying him his $10M+...He was terrific in 2019 and was very sorely missed this past year.
He affects so many scheme decisions. He allows you to do so many different things. Best defensive player of bb era IMO because of that.

It was blurb in one of his Sunday columns (Mac Jones as Patriots' QB of future? Decision at No. 15 could be telling):

My hunch is that safety Patrick Chung, tight end Matt LaCosse and fullback Danny Vitale make the same decision, while in my opinion, offensive tackle Marcus Cannon and linebacker Dont'a Hightower are less of a certainty to return.

Given that we have heard multiple times independently that Cannon was close to retiring last offseason I thought it is telling that Reiss put HT in the same category as him. Especially after there were some rumors indicating the same thing from some Twitter folks who apparently have a connection to him a couple months back.

I wouldnt be surprised if Hightower retired. Dude has his rings and has been through alot of injuries. I remember he didnt attend the parade in 2018 for similar reasons. that he already experienced it.

I don’t see anything there. In his opinion less likely just had to go with age in my opinion.
