Found May 14, 2012 on Football Nation:
QB: Robert Griffin III (rookie) HC Mike Shanahan has already told the media that Griffin would be the starter from day one and that he will be doing things from that quarterback position that people have not seen before. He has the tools around him with a solid running game, and a young group of ball catchers. The ceiling is high for the former Heisman Trophy winner.   RB: Roy Helu Helu came in to his own late last season playing in 15 games and racking up 640 yards and two scores, on top of his 379 yards receiving. He rushed for over 100 yards in thee straight games starting on November 27th against Seattle. The second-year player out of Nebraska will be expected to double his rushing yards next year as Shanahan’s ground attack begins to take form.   FB: Darrell Young Not much of a competition here seeing how Young is the only fullback on the roster after the Skins unexpectedly released Mike Sellers. Young is a linebacker-turned-fullback and showed signs of promise last year blo...

Fantasy Football Analysis: Washington Redskins’ Running Backs.

The Washington Redskins running back situation is shaping up to be an absolute nightmare for Fantasy Football owners in 2012, as the recent re-signing of Tim Hightower took an expected timeshare between Roy Helu and Evan Royster into a three-man cluster headed by head coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan is well known for his constant torment of Fantasy owners by constantly sharing...

Tim Hightower will return to the Washington Redskins in 2012

WASHINGTON D.C.—The Redskins have decided to give RB Tim Hightower another look after his 2011 season was cut short. He started five games before tearing his ACL. The Skins spent the off-season loading up on aerial weapons for the new face of their franchise Robert Griffin III, but they did not make an impact splash for him in the backfield. To read this story and watch a video...

Tim Hightower is back with the Redskins

Free agent running back Tim Hightower announced on his Twitter page that he’s back with the Washington Redskins after testing the open market. I’m baaaaaaaack… — Tim Hightower (@Tim_Hightower) May 14, 2012 Hightower had a solid season with the Redskins in 2011 by rushing for 321 yards and 1 touchdown in five games.  But unfortunately, his season...

Washington Redskins Re-Sign Tim Hightower, PPR Fantasy Football Analysis.

Tim Hightower will be a Washington Redskins again in 2012. Tim Hightower has finally agreed to return to the Washington Redskins for the 2012 season, according to a report by the Washington Post, taking a seemingly clear running back situation into a typical Shanahanian cluster that fantasy football owners live to hate. Hightower was fairly productive in his first and only...

Washington Redskins Re-sign RB Tim Hightower

Ashburn, VA (Sports Network) - The Washington Redskins have re-signed unrestricted free agent running back Tim Hightower. Hightower started five games in 2011 before a torn ACL in Week 7 forced him to miss the final 11 contests of the season. He rushed for 321 yards on 84 carries with one score.

Free agent RB Hightower re-signs with Redskins

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...

Tim Hightower to start for Redskins?

The Redskins resigned Tim Hightower this week, giving them a 4th running back to go with Roy Helu, Evan Royster, and rookie Alfred Morris. It was believed that Hightower was brought in to be a #2 back, but Mike Jones of the Washington Post believes Hightower could start for them. This makes some sense because Hightower is such a well rounded back and he played well to start the season...

Redskins re-sign Tim Hightower

The Redskins have re-signed Tim Hightower, the man who started the 2011 season as their #1 back, to an undisclosed contract. Still just 26, I’m surprised Hightower lasted as long as he did on the open market, even after a major knee injury ended his 2011 season short. Hightower was solid as a starter for Washington last year and before that was a great 3rd down back in Arizona...

Tim Hightower rejoins Redskins

A league source confirmed the accuracy of Hightower's Tweet. Hightower is coming off a torn left anterior cruciate ligament sustained last season against the Carolina Panthers.

Was Michael Vick Disrespected by Robert Griffin III? You Be The Judge

Was Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick inadvertently disrespected by Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III?  Apparently some Eagles fans feel that is the case after an RG3 interview with the DC press took place at the end of April. A mini “Twitter-ruption” (okay, maybe it wasn’t that bad, but I did say “mini”) took place recently amongst some Eagles fans who felt...

What if Kirk Cousins was destined for the Redskins and Robert Griffin III was a matter of luck

A segment on the NFL Network last week asked the question, "What if Andrew Luck entered the 2011 NFL Draft?" Luck chose to remain for another year at Stanford in hopes of leading the Cardinal to a national title. The Cliff Notes version of the story is that the Carolina Panthers would have drafted Luck over Cam Newton. The Denver Broncos would then have drafted Newton...
