Dont’a Hightower, Down A Few Pounds, Looks Totally Different In This Photo

Time will tell how Dont’a Hightower looks at the start of the 2019 NFL season.

But right now, the New England Patriots linebacker looks like a whole new man.

Hightower, 29, worked out Thursday with Patriots guard Shaq Mason, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Benny Cunningham and Jeremy Holt, a former receiver for Division II Harding University. Holt shared a photo of the four players after the workout, and Hightower looks borderline unrecognizable.

As Hightower said, he’s currently operating around 250-255 pounds. And while that’s not a steep drop off from Hightower’s listed weight of 260 pounds, it certainly shows the three-time Super Bowl champion is putting in work this offseason.

For what it’s worth, Hightower came into the NFL at 270 pounds.
