NFL Rumors: Dont’a Hightower’s Meeting With Steelers Gave Team ‘Positive Vibes’


Free-agent linebacker Dont’a Hightower braved a winter storm Thursday to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to NFL Media’s Aditi Kinkhabwala, the meeting went well, though it did not result in a contract agreement.

Hightower is the top prize remaining on the free-agent market. He also met with the New York Jets earlier this week and very well could wind up re-signing with his previous team, the New England Patriots.

Jason La Canfora of reported Monday teams that had been in contact with Hightower were “convinced” the 27-year-old Pro Bowler would end up back in New England.
