Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

23 Rushing TD's in 3 years? Pretty solid

In an RB by committee system with 65% passing plays during the time he was there (2008-2010) which was third highest in the league for that span

I think he is really underrated and love the pickup

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I've seen many Cards fans pissed about losing him

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

solid... i imagine torain, helu, and hightower make the cut, and we got brown too. no need for big money on bradshaw etc, big money rbs don't usually get you value. and paying DW over 8mill per would be stupid, especially when he ends up back on IR by miseason.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Holliday was gunna be a backup, I bet Hightower will be too...but he's like a decade younger AND on a team with no QB passing threat...a CRITICAL need....so...I am LOVING this trade...quite wise....a legit running threat...we could use a legit receiving threat too.

If this shows insight to the minds of Shanny and Allen...perhaps they were thinking draft a ton of playmakers RB and WR....and grab one vet playmaker of each to buy us time until they develop...I just don't know if Gaffney is considered enough of a threat as a WR...he certainly doesn't seem to be more of one than our existing Moss....unlike the RB position...therefore, I think our odds of going after a #1 WR have just increased quite a bit.

I think this trade will prove to be a good thing for us after this season. We gave up Holliday, who brings leadership to the team but not much else, and the conditional pick all depends on how Hightower performs. If he performs good, the Cards get adequate compensation. If he performs bad, they get minimal compensation. It works out for both sides in the end, especially since Hightower didn't have much of a future in AZ with Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells.

Why did they draft all those RBs and WRs in the draft again? Looks like they should've targeted some OL and maybe [gasp] a QB!?
Yeah me too. Eff that winning sh*t. :frusty:

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Surprised by this signing did not see us adding someone of his caliber. I dont like giving up any draft picks but at least we got a productive young player for an older player and a pick

Negative nancy. 2014 is 4 seasons from now, most teams have a lot of turnover in that time period.

Brown - starter
Chester - starter
Hightower - possible starter
Wilson - starter
Bowen - starter
Cofield - starter
Kerrigan - starter
Hankerson - starter
Jenkins - 3rd DE
Otogwe - starter

I say that we have had a pretty damn good offseason/draft

Can't confirm this so don't read into it too much, but I think Beck's rating will be around a 67 in this year's Madden. Enjoy.
