Redskins trade for Hightower

From the twitter account of ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Redskins have traded defensive end Vonnie Holiday for Arizona running back Tim Hightower. The trade will also include a later pick in an upcoming draft. Hightower looks to immediately compete for the starting job with current Skins running back Ryan Torain. Hightower is a native of the DC metro area and would be a significant upgrade in the backfield for the Skins, should he remain healthy.
