Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

Why would we deal Hightower?

He's apparently healthy again or very close to being, while Helu and Royster are not. We've cut Tristan Davis, so this would leave us with ONE healthy RB and he's a rookie.

I don't believe it. We just re-signed him and I thought Mike Shanahan loved him.


Unless we're bringing someone else in...I keep going back to Ryan Grant who we've been reportedly watching for a while...I don't think we could get away with making this move. Grant would be a big downgrade from Tim too.

More importantly, Hightower is the best pass-blocking RB we've had since Portis. Griffin needs him more for that than gaining yardage.

Apparently his little setback yesterday was not so little. Even if he stays he likely might miss the first couple of weeks

But that's just speculation at the moment. Crazy day of rumors

I like him too, perhaps it is because of the competition at WR/LB or possibly the need for a backup CB.

Well then I could understand trying to get SOMETHING for him. He's a well-known name and could have some value, but that still leaves the problem...who other than Alfred Morris is ready to go at the RB position?

Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

Well I'd keep an eye on what's happening in Miami with Slaton. Maybe Forsett in Houston. I know Forsett has been rumored, I haven't head it myself. Have heard Slaton from a lot of different people from here down to Miami. If he does get cut, Skins are jumping on that

Couldn't get the knee healthy. RT @granthpaulsen: According to a source, #Redskins will release RB Tim Hightower today.

Re: Official Redskins Final Cuts Thread

A month ago I would have said Hightower to IR (I think I did actually), two weeks ago (Hightower starting). Now he's back on the unemployment line. Crazy

I just hope he can still pay rent because my family's not lending him the use of our house for free

Thank God. I really like his potential.

he has a lot of friends in the area. (knowing nothing about the ravens backfield) wouldn't be surprised if they gave him a sniff.

This is why I don't draft Redskin RBs! LOL

So what are we looking at for RBs against the Saints now? Royster starting with Helu on 3 down? Morris is great, but too green to start against the Saints right?
