Tim Hightower cut from Washington Redskins
In one of the biggest surprise cuts for not only Washington but around the NFL, the Redskins released running back Tim Hightower.
Many considered Hightower the favorite to start at tailback. But, the club opted to go with 6th round pick Alfred Morris instead.
Hightower rushed for 321 yards in five games with the Redskins last year and rushed for more than 2,000 yards in his career.
The 26-year-old was coming back from an ACL injury.
