Free agent RB Hightower re-signs with Redskins
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Free agent running back Tim Hightower has re-signed with the Washington Redskins.
The 25-year-old Hightower rushed for 321 yards on 84 carries in five games last season before going on injured reserve with a torn ligament in his left knee.
A fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft out of Richmond, Hightower spent three years with the Arizona Cardinals. For his career, he has rushed 523 times for 2,054 yards and 24 touchdowns, with 128 catches for 879 yards.
Hightower was traded to the Redskins before last season. He attended high school in Alexandria, Va.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Redskins also said Monday they had waived tight end Rob Myers. Myers played in one game last season with no catches.
