Tim Hightower signs with 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers and free agent running back Tim Hightower have agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Hightower, who spent the past two seasons with the Saints, signed with San Franciso Saturday. While in New Orleans, the 30-year-old running back rejuvenated his career after a three-year hiatus from the game. Playing in 24 games since 2015, Hightower accumulated 923 yards and eight touchdowns as a rusher and caught 34 targets for 329 yards and another score as a receiver out of the backfield. With Carlos Hyde the clear cut starter, Hightower will compete with DuJuan Harris for the No. 2 spot on the 49ers' running back depth chart entering the 2017 season.
