05:47 PM ET 05.16 | The Washington Redskins and New York Giants have both had exploratory talks regarding the services of free agent running back Tim Hightower, who last played for the Redskins during the 2012 preseason, two people with knowledge of the situation said. It wasn???t immediately clear how serious the Redskins??? interest is, but the Giants held talks with Hightower earlier this month and were expected to meet with him again ???in a couple weeks,??? one person said. The second person said they weren???t sure how close either team was to signing Hightower, however. The Redskins acquired Hightower via trade from the Arizona Cardinals in the summer of 2011, and he opened the season as their starting running back. But he tore his ACL in the fifth game of the season. In five games, Hightower had 84 carries for 321 yards and a touchdown. He also had 10 catches for 78 yards and a touchdown.

I liked Hightower in Arizona, but sometimes he tended to put the ball on the ground a little too often.
