All-Pro linebacker Dont’a Hightower recently made free-agent visits with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, but both teams came away believing he’ll ultimately re-sign with the New England Patriots, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.

Hightower is one of the top free agents left on the market. The five-year pro was named a second-team All-Pro in 2016 after he racked up 65 total tackles and 2.5 sacks in 13 games.

New England has been rumored to be his likely destination and the two AFC rivals appear to believe that as well.
