RB Tim Hightower Traded to Washington

Adam Schefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

The Arizona Cardinals are trading RB Tim Hightower to Washington for a conditional late-round pick based on playing time, along with DE Vonnie Holliday.

Fantasy Impact: 

After playing with Derek Anderson last season, Hightower won't notice much difference with John Beck, Rex Grossman, and Kellen Clemens. Hightower will battle Ryan Torain and rookies Roy Helu and Evan Royster for playing time. Given that Mike Shanahan has often employed a merry-go-round approach in the backfield, Hightower could find some playing time. Right now, he's probably no more than a late round flyer in most fantasy leagues.
