The 49ers have released RB Tim Hightower. The 31-year-old mustered just 1.8 yards per carry this preseason and was outplayed by undrafted free agent Matt Breida. Breida seems poised to open the year as San Francisco's #2 RB.

The 49ers on Saturday agreed to terms with RB Tim Hightower. The veteran joins Mike Davis, Raheem Mostert and DuJuan Harris -- who re-signed earlier this week -- behind starter Carlos Hyde. If you're looking for a Hyde handcuff, Hightower looks like the current best bet. He carried 229 times and caught 34 passes as New Orleans' #2 back over the past 2 seasons. We'll see what the new coaching staff thinks of Davis and whether the Niners add another RB in the NFL Draft.

The Saints have re-signed RB Tim Hightower, according to insider Katherine Terrell.  Out of the league from 2012 to 2014, Hightower earned a roster spot with the Saints last year and came up big with RB Mark Ingram out late in the year.  He racked up 327 rushing yards, 129 receiving yards and 4 total TDs over the season's final 4 games.  Hightower isn't a threat to Ingram's starting job in 2016, but he'd turn into a fantasy asset if Ingram goes down again.

Saints insiders Nick Underhill and Mike Triplett both believe the team will deploy a RB-by-committee to replace Mark Ingram for the final 4 games.  Ingram was a 3-down workhorse for New Orleans, averaging 13.8 carries and 4.2 catches per game.  RB Tim Hightower will likely see the majority of the early-down work, per Underhill and Triplett, with RB C.J. Spiller assuming most of Ingram's passing-down duties.  Both guys look like no more than RB3s the rest of the way, with Hightower looking more valuable in non-PPR and Spiller in PPR.
