Tim Hightower favorite to back up Mark Ingram

The New Orleans Advocate confirms Tim Hightower "seems like the best bet" to open the season as Mark Ingram's primary backup.

Signed off the street just one month before Ingram's year-ending shoulder injury last season, Hightower emerged as the Saints' every-down back and was a hero in the fantasy playoffs. The Advocate's Nick Underhill says C.J. Spiller "needs to prove he can still be productive" after a lost first season in New Orleans. Underhill even suggests Spiller's roster spot may not be assured. Ingram owners searching for a handcuff should look in Hightower's direction.

I remember Payton saying a few months ago that Spiller was lookng like his old self. If that's true and he's over his injuries, we'll have the best backfield in the nfl

I'm full on the Tim Hightower train. It's going to be a great year for a great comeback.

I agree I think we have a solid stable of RB's if all can stay healthy.

I'm good with it also. Just hope him turning "The 30" in May doesn't mean anything.

He was out of football for a long time and we are not abusing him.

His body is a very young 30. He had 3 years off. He could produce on a high level for 4-5 more years barring major injury.
