NFL Rumors: Steelers Will Rescind Offer To Dont’a Hightower If He Leaves Pittsburgh


The Pittsburgh Steelers have made their offer to Dont’a Hightower — and given him a deadline.

The Steelers, who hosted the prized free-agent linebacker for a visit Tuesday, informed Hightower their deal will be off the table if he leaves Pittsburgh without signing a contract, according to a report by NFL Media’s Aditi Kinkhabwala.

Kinkhabwala reported earlier in the day that Hightower’s visit gave the Steelers “positive vibes” but that the 27-year-old left the team facility without a contract in hand.

The New York Jets also have made a strong push to sign Hightower, and the New England Patriots remain in contention to re-sign him.
