Cardinals trade RB Hightower to Washington
A murky Arizona Cardinals backfield cleared up a bit Sunday as the team dealt running back Tim Hightower to the Washington Redskins.
A restricted free agent, Hightower was the Cardinals’ leading rusher last season with 736 yards, but was plagued with fumbling problems.
In return for Hightower, the Cardinals will receive veteran defensive end Vonnie Holliday and a conditional draft pick.
A 14-year veteran, Holliday has 62.5 career sacks, including 2.5 last season for Washington.
