My dreams are dashed Dont’a Hightower signs back with the Patriots
Dont’a Hightower just got paid. It seems like his shopping around was to gauge his worth on the open market to get a fair deal with the Patriots. He resigned to a four-year $43.5 million deal. The 27-year-old outside linebacker will get $19 million in guaranteed money. The news broke with Hightower’s agency.

Hightower was a big target for the Steelers having lost Timmons in the offseason. The Patriots are really gearing up for another run in the 2017-18 season by making a bunch of splashes during the offseason. They also have shored up their defense signing Stephon Gilmore.
