I forgot to say that I really like this trade, but I'm very curious who is gonna be on the opening day roster now.

I don't think we will be able to carry 4 on roster, so I would have to guess that Royster will end up on practice squad.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Turn an aging depth player we got from FA into a potentially useful and young RB. Not a bad move at all.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Hightower isn't that good, but he'll probably start here until Helu is ready. We essentially just have him on a one-year rental because he's UFA after the year.

I can't imagine that Hightower's impact on the offense will be greater than Vonnie's impact on the defense would have been. But this team isn't going anywhere, and this move knocks the average age of our team down a notch (my favorite meaningless stat!)

Nice knowing you, Ryan Torain.

I was going to say that about Royster... You think he makes it over Torain?

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

About a week ago I posted a reply in our FA thread stating I thought we should sign D Williams and a few big posters stated "we have so and so RBs on our depth chart" and responded viciously. Its OBVIOUS now that Shanny was feeling... the fact that none of our RBs are anywhere near what other teams have. Keiland Willams and James Davis just won't cut it fellas.
I still think we shoulda nabbed D Will and now were on Hightower.

As for Hightower... he's really not that bad. And I'm glad we got him. I like Keiland Williams.. but he's just not what we need.
Hightower has big play capabilities.. and that's what I felt we needed from RB

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

GTripp,
If there is a signing the majority of people on the Warpath like or approve of, you come up with something negative about the signing. If the majority hates the signing of a player you come up with something positive to say. I noticed that alot................Lol
So in saying that, you bring down when i like the signing but in return you get me excited about the signing when i dont like it!

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I compare Hightower to Marion Barber, a tough nose guy that is not afraid to run between the tackles, great move as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe he's thinking of Reno Hightower from the Taft Rockets. He did throw a he'll of a pass to Jack Dundee to defeat the Bakersfield Tigers !

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Like the move. Very underrated RB. Young, hard runner, who can pass block, catch, and has speed to break a long one. I've always felt he can be a good starting caliber RB, and now he has that chance; Giving up Holliday, who was expendable, and a 5th.

Great Move
