The New York Jets are in heavy pursuit of linebacker Dont’a Hightower. At this point it may be more about driving the price of the player up than perhaps signing the player. Or is it?
According to report, the New York Jets are pulling all the stops to land the highly coveted linebacker including getting him happy birthday cupcakes!
Schefter said the Jets have pulled out all the stops to sign Hightower. Including birthday cupcakes.
That's big, if true

Typical Jets, trying to use cupcakes to lure in a player. It’s not to signify that Dont’a just had a birthday, it’s most likely to show that the team is a bunch of weak cupcakes and they are just foreshadowing. Someone know’s how to google ‘what is Dont’a Hightower’s birthday’ at the Jets headquarters which is sort of surprising in itself. What are some of these other ‘stops’ they are pulling? Pitching having January and February off?
Truth be told, if the money is somewhat close, Dont’a has to sign in New England, right? The Jets really know how to charm someone and win them over though, this has me very concerned.
On a side note, the Titans GM said he never met with Hightower which is strange because it was reported that he met with them…

The longer this goes on, the more I get the feeling that Hightower will be back here in New England.
