Dont’a Hightower was brutally honest about the worst part of his return to football

·1 min read

New England Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower was not afraid to share his feelings on returning to work. Hightower, a COVID-19 opt-out, did not participate in the 2020 season due to personal reasons.

He’s clearly happy to be back and playing football — he’s also clearly not thrilled about every part of his job. Hightower was asked about the hardest part of returning to the NFL after a year off. His answer might resonate with people who have also returned to the office over the last few months.

“Lot of meetings. There’s no lie in that. Meetings are the worst part of coming back to football,” Hightower told reporters Wednesday.

Hightower’s brutal honesty gave life to a little comedy.
