Patriots Re-Sign Pro Bowl Linebacker Dont’a Hightower
The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots continue in what has been a very positive off-season thus far by resigning their star linebacker Dont'a Hightower. His deal with the Patriots has him making $43.5 million over the span of four years.
In Hightower's five years that he has spent with New England he has been an integral part of their defense, racking up 17 sacks and getting 372 tackles. This is an important move for the champs, following the signing of free-agent corner-back Stephon Gilmore.
Hightower was receiving interest from a handful of different teams, while being in talks with the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers, so Patriots fans are ecstatic that he will be returning.
