My guess is that you've captured Shanny's idea. I don't think Hightower is here to send Helu to the bench. Instead, he's here for insurance should Helu struggle learning pass protection.

If Hightower makes the team I'll give him a video.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Anytime you get younger, and swap out a guy who might not have made the team anyway that is a win in my book.

Lose an expendable old guy, while adding depth and youth. I certainly cant thumbs down this one...

Thinking we might be focused on running the ball all day long...

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Nice move, he's pretty versatile. I could see him being primarily the 3rd down guy.

It was kinda hard to see Holiday even making the team.

I see this as trading haynesworth for Hightower. Very good move

Yeah! don't think he would be very excited about either Helu or Royster being in a game in critical passing situations until he's actually seen what they can do in game conditions. What it means for K. Williams may yet to be determined. The RB competition is becoming crowded.

Matty added 118 catches in 3 seasons.......that's money

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I really love this move.

Instantly the most proven comidity we have at RB. the guy brings speed, youth, and experience to our back field for an old guy we got for next to nothing last year. Great move.

Great trade, love Hightower. He will fulfill his potential with the Redskins, which he didn't do with the cards.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

The reality of Shanahan is that unless he's got a stud like Terrell Davis in the backfield, everyone gets a shot at the ball.

I think we'll keep Hightower and he'll get his touches, especially on the receiving end. We'll keep Helu because he's got the one-cut style Shanahan loves and enough speed to threaten the defense on a homerun. And it will be up to Torain, Royster, and K Williams to battle for the other spot. Will probably come down to teams.

Helu will lead our team in touches and yards from scrimmage at the RB position.

...I would've wanted Skelton, though. Skelton by a mile.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

The jury is out on this one for me until I know the draft pick involved. If it's a 5th or better, I don't like it. 6th would be okay, 7th would make my day.

I guess I'm just not wowed by the trade if it's a 5th. Yes, we shipped off Vonnie, but taking him out of the equation, I don't like a 5th for a player of questionable value at a position where we have already have a lot of potential.
