The New York Giants haven’t done much in the running back department since they released Ahmad Bradshaw. They still have David Wilson and Andre Brown on their roster, but they need to add a veteran RB.

It has been reported by Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News that the Giants will take a look at free agent running back Tim Hightower.

Adding Hightower wouldn’t be a bad idea considering the Giants’ depth at running back. Hightower was a dangerous third-down back for the Arizona Cardinals, and he also did a good job as a starter with the Washington Redskins before tearing his ACL five games into the 2011 season. Before he went down, he carried the ball 84 times for 321 yards.

In his four-year career, the running back carried the ball 523 times for 2,054 yards and 24 touchdowns, and also has 128 receptions for 879 yards.

If Hightower shows he’s healthy, he can bring a lot of the same aggressiveness that Big Blue saw out of Bradshaw.
