Redskins and RB Tim Hightower Agree to Terms on a One-Year Deal

The Redskins have another weapon for new QB RGIII, as the team Sunday came to terms with free-agent running back Tim Hightower.

Reports say that Hightower agreed to terms on a one-year deal. He broke news of the deal on his Twitter account. He tweeted a photo of himself in a Redskins hat, along with the message “I’m back.”

Hightower had gotten some interest from the Patriots, but instead the 25-year-old will come back to the new look Skins with a new QB and other new players that will hopefully get the team back to the top of the NFC East..

Hightower had 84 carries for 321 yards and a touchdown in five games with the Redskins in 2011 before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament that knocked him out for the year.

The Redskins initially acquired Hightower after the 2010 season, shipping defensive lineman Vonnie Holliday and a draft pick to the Cardinals in exchange for the running back.
