The Patriots have exercised LB Dont'a Hightower's fifth-year option for 2016.
After an inconsistent first two NFL seasons, Hightower broke out as a third-year pro for six sacks and 89 tackles in just 12 games. Hightower is currently coming off surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He's likely to be sidelined for all of OTAs, but the 25-year-old is in no danger of missing Week 1.
