    New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is the best bet to serve as the primary backup for RB Mark Ingram, according to beat writer Nick Underhill.

    Huddle Up: Hightower's skill set most closely matches that of Ingram, so it makes sense to have him serve as the top backup. The team can't exactly bank on CJ Spiller to be healthy and available in that role, and even if he is the Saints would likely use him in different ways as opposed to between the tackles running.

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is the lead running back for the Saints, while RB Tim Hightower appears to be the backup, according to Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune. RB C.J. Spiller holds the No. 3 spot.

    Huddle Up: Hightower, who last year saw his first regular-season work since 2011, is the true Ingram handcuff for now as Spiller -- if used more -- fills more of the Darren Sproles, third-down role. Some insiders also like the chances of seventh-round rookie Daniel Lasco to challenge Hightower for the No. 2 gig.

    Free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) has agreed to initial terms on a contract with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 30-year-old back totaled 504 yards and four scores in his first NFL action since 2011 and once again will be the main pure-RB backup to Mark Ingram this season.

    Free-agent RB Tim Hightower (Saints) will meet with the New Orleans Saints in the coming week.

    Huddle Up: The 29-year-old Hightower had a decent end-of-the-season run, rushing for 327 of his 375 yards in the final four games of the season following Mark Ingram's shoulder injury. With receiving specialists C.J. Spiller and Travaris Cadet the other prominent names on the N.O. RB depth chart, Hightower might once again fill the Ingram-handcuff role if the two side can reach an agreement.

    New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower could have a significant role in the backfield with RB Mark Ingram's (shoulder) season over. Head coach Sean Payton has praised Hightower for his ability and pass protection. 'He's competitive, he's tough, he's been in that spotlight. And for him, it's the confidence that leg is a 100 percent,' head coach Sean Payton said. 'So I'm excited to see him play, just like I am with C.J.'

    Huddle Up: Even though Hightower hadn't played in a game since 2011 prior to this season, he would seem to better suited to be the Saints' new lead back and don't be surprised if he -- and not C.J. Spiller -- assumes the majority on Ingram's workload, starting Sunday against the Bucs.

    The New Orleans Saints re-signed RB Tim Hightower to an undisclosed deal Monday, Nov. 2, according to a source. Hightower hasn't played in a regular season game since 2011 due to injuries. Hightower is replacing Khiry Robinson, who suffered a season-ending broken leg in Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Huddle Up: Robinson was averaging 9.1 touches a game, and while Hightower comeback story is an intriguing one most of the touches should be absorbed by Mark Ingram, C.J. Spiller and rookie seventh-round pick Marcus Murphy.
