The New Orleans Saints are reportedly still trying to hammer out a deal with veteran running back Tim Hightower.

The Saints are scheduled to meet with Hightower this week as they try to come to terms on a new contract, according to Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Hightower signed a one-year, $745,000 deal with the Saints last season after being out of the NFL for three years due to a lingering ACL injury. He was cut twice before rejoining the team in November as a replacement for the injured Khiry Robinson, and made the most of the opportunity, becoming one of the league's feel-good stories of 2015.
