The New York Daily News
reports that former Redskins running back Tim Hightower
is expected to visit Giants this weekend. Hightower, 26, was once a promising back who scored 23 touchdowns in his first three NFL seasons. But he hasnt played a regular season game in 17 months since tearing his left ACL in Oct., 2011. The Giants seem set at the top of their depth chart at running back, with last years No. 1 pick David Wilson
and Andre Brown
a restricted free agent who has yet to sign his tender set to battle for the starting job. But if healthy, the 6-foot, 220-pound Hightower could compete for the third spot with Ryan Torain
(his former backup in Washington) and DaRel Scott, who missed most of last season after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.
