Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

How could anyone not like this move? Hightower is young, has speed and can catch out of the backfield. He's just what we need cause Williams is about as elusive as a turtle. They got rid of an old washed up DL. Not sure what AZ was thinking but I love this move!

the only downside is that i'm pretty sure he will be a FA next year, so it could be a one and done kinda thing.

If things go well I could see them giving him a new deal at some point during the season.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I see him more in a 3rd down role, with Torain and Helu getting the rest of the work. But we'll see.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Great trade! Hightower is very versatile and definitely performed better than the guy he kept getting benched for, Beanie Wells. Great receiving back.

Vonnie Holliday, thanks for the effort.


The Cardinals are getting ripped off in trades, it appears.

I did not think we needed another RB but Hightower is a talented player.

Also, Keiland Williams is likely to move to FB, so there still may be room to keep Torain, Helu and Royster along with Hightower. Anything we can do to keep Torain healthy and fresh will be of huge benefit.

Cut. He's working out at TE and has zero chance of making the team with Cooley, Davis and Paulsen.

Darrel Young and Keiland Williams are a gret young FB tandem. Sellers had a great career here, but has been slipping over the past couple years...dropped passes, didn't look like he was giving 100% effort at all times...

Fabulous.
He's close enough at 6.8. To be exact he had 12 fums. and lost 8 in 3yrs. at Ariz. Expect Bobby Turner to work closely with him about the importance of securing the ball.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I like the move for Keiland. Just has to improve his blocking, hopefully we can see him do some of this this season

I still think Torrain is the starting running back.

I agree.....if he's not the starter there's not much left for him, he does not play teams.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

don't know what's happening or why,but VH is refusing to report to the cardinals.don't know if that kills the trade or not.just know he is not reporting.as for sellers,i think ever since he made the pro bowl,he has been a shell of his older self.

I doubt it, once the trade is done the player traded become the new team's problem. See the whole Richard Seymour situation when Darth Hoody sent him to Oakland.
