CSN New England believes Patriots WLB Dont'a Hightower will command at least as much as Bucs WLB Lavonte David when he signs his next contract.
The Bucs signed David to a five-year, $50 million pact with $22.5 million guaranteed last offseason. While the Patriots could look to extend Hightower's contract this offseason, the belief is Hightower is a "smart businessman who’ll understand his value both in Foxboro or, if it comes to pass, elsewhere." Hightower earned PFF's fifth-highest 4-3 outside linebacker grade out of 35 qualifiers in 2015. Jan 31 - 8:38 AM
