Patriots SLB Dont'a Hightower wants to be used more as a pass rusher on third down.
"I'll just put it out there: I would much rather rush or blitz than to cover: zone, man, or whatever," Hightower said. The Patriots would rather him rush as well. Hightower was one of the worst cover linebackers in the league last season, but he does have some skills as a pass rusher. Still, he will likely be limited to a two-down role in 2014.
