Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I think the pick depends on how he performs.

29.

I actually had a Dickerson Rams poster on my wall as a kid, early in his career.


Had a Walter Payton up too.

Sort of ruins the point of sarcasm though doesn't it?

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

By Mike Jones: Washington Post


Tim Hightower with Redskins ‘for a reason’

Tim Hightower was on his way to Flagstaff, Ariz., where the Arizona Cardinals were holding training camp when he got a call the call on Sunday. The fourth-year running back learned that he had been traded to the Washington Redskins.


“I had put the last of my stuff in the car and was getting ready for another year of being a Cardinal,” Hightower said on Tuesday. “But it came at the right time and I feel like I’m here for a reason.”


Now, Hightower is back on the East Coast and right in his backyard.


The Alexandria native starred at Episcopal High School and the University of Richmond before being drafted in the fifth round by the Cardinals in 2008. But on Tuesday, he began getting acclimated to the team he grew up cheering for, and the team that he hopes to eventually start for at running back.


Hightower believes that he is a good fit for Mike Shanahan’s zone blocking scheme. When asked why, he offered a simple answer.


“I’m a running back and they like to run the ball a lot, so I’m excited,” Hightower said with a laugh.


He continued: “It really resembles a lot of stuff I did in college. The zone schemes are pretty clear cut, they get downhill and allow the running back to be physical. It will allow me to get into a rhythm. I consider myself a rhythm running back. I like getting into my groove and I feel like I have a great opportunity to do that here.”


In addition to his running abilities, the Redskins like Hightower’s versatility, particularly his pass-protection skills. He said the importance of that skill was instilled in early in his professional career.


“When you play with Kurt Warner, you’ve got to learn how to pass protect,” Hightower grinned. “He likes to throw the football and for you to protect him. That’s just something I’m used to. My first year I was given an ultimatum that you either block or you don’t play, so I picked that up pretty quick. Now it’s something I take pride in.”

I have been singing that song for awhile. Most forums use red font to indicate sarcasm, it is pretty universal rule.

Good quotes: Preferred running style: "going downhill and allowing the running back to be physical and really get into a rhythm."

Playing in the NFC East: "That’s my kind of football: grinding out tough, hard-nosed football. That’s me. That’s who I am. So, I’m going to embrace it.”

Hightower could be a very good fit here. Could be the biggest add in FA.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I have always picked him up in fantasy leagues, he is usually a really good fantasy value late in the draft. Playing here might just up his value a bit. If it is between him and ATV, Ill take Hightower any day. Torain is a servicable 2nd RB. Flashes of greatness, but no consistency. If Hightower can limit those fumbles, he will do fine

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I didn't think much about this trade when it first happened, but since then I've realized it might be one of the biggest deals we make this whole offseason. Especially if Torain is injured again. This guy's got a great attitude, and like has been mentioned, if he can cut down the fumbles there's no reason why Hightower can't be great.
