Hightower has been reasonably productive for the Cardinals but with the addition of newly drafted running back Ryan Williams, Hightower become expendable. The Redskins will most likely give him a shot at starting. Their backfield currently consists of Ryan Torrain, Roy Helu and now Hightower.
The Cardinals get a solid veteran defensive tackle in Vonnie Holliday who has been much more productive than one would assume given his age. Overall the deal isn’t spectacular but also is not a detriment to either team.
