Hightower re-joining Saints backfield-- Fri Apr 8 11:45 am --
Handcuff material for Ingram owners
Running back Tim Hightower is re-signing with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.
The two sides met last week and have agreed to initial terms on a new contract. Hightower played in eight games for New Orleans in 2016, rushing for 375 yards and four touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 129 yards.
FF Today's Take:Hightower filled in nicely for an injured Mark Ingram allowing the team to let Khiry Robinson move on in free agency. Even though Hightower is closing in on 30 years age, he spent three-plus years out of the league due to a knee injury. He'll be handcuff material for Ingram owners.
