The Jets are interested in former Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. (Costello, March 10).

Helu could be a possible replacement for Percy Harvin, who was released earlier Tuesday. Helu has 73 catches for 728 yards and two touchdowns the past two seasons.

The Redskins took Helu (5 foot 11, 215 pounds) in the fourth round in the 2011 draft out of Nebraska. He rushed for a career-high 640 yards that season and 216 yards last season.

It appears the Giants' pursuit of Tim Hightower is ongoing. And now another team has entered the race.

Both the Redskins and the Giants have inquired about signing Hightower this off-season, according to the Washington Post.

The last team to employ the running back was Washington -- back during the 2012 pre-season -- while New York has been the primary team linked to him this off-season.

Off to Snyderville, MD to examine the Redskins? draft.? It was a ridiculous season that included Mike Shannahan returning to football, a historic Monday night beat-down from Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb being benched for ? wait for it ? Rex Grossman.? There were some bright spots, such as beating the two teams that played for the NFC Championship (Bears and Packers) and finishing above the Cowboys, but it was another tough season in the nation?s capital.

The Skins could have gone a number of ways.? They could have taken a running back or an offensive lineman to boost the third worst running game in the league.? They could have taken a receiver to help rejuvenate an aging and below-average group of pass-catchers.? Most of all, they could have taken pass rushers or secondary help to aid the second worst pass defense in the NFL.? They did all of these things.
