Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I think we only have 2 players on the the roster 10+ plus experience. Last year we had 7, so we are getting younger. That's a good thing.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

University of Richmond baby!....Hightower has really been a success story, cant believe Arizona is getting rid of this guy...he does it all. Power back, pass block and catches the ball outta the backfield.

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one. But we'll see when he hits the field.
Comparing depth at RB to depth at DE. Seemed like, before this trade, we had both. Now it seems like we have just one.

Of course, this trade likely signaled that Holliday wasn't going to make the team anyway, so there's that. Hightower can now replace Torain as the fan's crush who probably isn't helping the team that much.

If he lays out a couple of NFC East linebackers in pass pro, it will be a trade well spent. For entertainment value at least. I'd rather have kept the 6th rounder or 7th rounder or whatever it ends up being.

Great Move
Where did you see we gave up a 5th? All I can find is an undisclosed pick. If we gave up a 5th and Holiday, that's too much. Ochocinco went for a 5th, and Santonio Holmes went for a 5th last year. I don't think Hightower's worth a 5th.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Cards fans feel like we got a steal, IF Hightower can hold onto the ball. But Hightower's durability and toughness is huge when we face the rest of the East (started 13 of 16 games last yr)

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

He's good depth to have. I don't think we gave up a fifth for him, but like everyone is saying, solid pickup. It's looking more and more like Keiland Williams won't be playing running back this season. Curious to see if this bumps Royster down to the PS, even though he was probably destined to go there anyways.

I think you get no arguement hes a back up. Hes not a starter but a guy who will touch the ball 10 times a game and come in a pass block (i.e. Portis entire value last year).

His best value will be this: he will get the ball at the goalline and SCORE, we've had a little problem with that for awhile.

I think we gave up a sixth for him.

I heard either a 5th or 6th based on Hightower's performance and playing time, but I might be wrong. I'm fine with giving away a 5th, because he'll probably start Wk 1.

Well, I think if he comes here and ends up backing up Helu from day one, it's the best of all worlds. Tim Hightower is a quality no. 2 RB in the NFL. I think that's his peak value, and it also would mean Helu is doing what he is drafted to do.

Plus, Hightower stays healthy and plays special teams, the biggest difference between him and Torain.

And possibly seven new starters on defense. I like the Hightower signing btw. He could be a good addition on 3rd down providing he can catch...we know he can block.

Yes. I think that Holliday, despite past contributions, was not going to factor much this year. We're riding the Jarvis Jenkins train for good or for ill. So I think that Hightower will contribute more than Holliday would.
