The Patriots picked up DE Chandler Jones fifth year option on May 1st, the day after they picked up fellow 2012 first round pick Hightower’s option.
Jones will have a 2015 cap hit of $2,457,637 and will be a $7.799 million salary in 2016.
Jones has 23.5 sacks in three seasons for the Patriots and is one of their best pass rushers.
These are two young players the Patriots are building around and Hightower and Jones will only continue to get better.
Hopefully they both will get extensions, if not only one will. Who would you want it to be?
