New England Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower may have another suitor to sign him this off-season as reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.


The Pats' veteran has played five seasons in the NFL and has recorded 17 sacks, two fumble recoveries, and 251 tackles in 67 games with New England in his career.  He was selected 25th overall by the Pats out of Alabama in the 2012 draft.

Hightower may have his meeting delayed due to in-climate weather in the New York area that is sweeping up the east coast.  He still plans to visit with Pittsburgh personnel before making any decision.
