New England Patriots veteran linebacker Dont’a Hightower is squashing rumors that he was set to retire by saying that he never considered calling it a career during the offseason, according to Mass Live’s Chris Mason.

Hightower, 31, made his return tot he team after he was one of several Patriots players to opt out of the 2020 season.

“I don’t know what y’all want for me to say, man. I’m here. I’m working. I’m in minicamp, bruh. I’m not here to write a story for you, dawg,” Hightower said. “I’m here to work, man. I’m here. I don’t know what else y’all want me to say. If I wasn’t here, then I think that would be something to talk about. But I’m here. Hopefully that knocks all those questions out.”
