Im in a Weed ID class right now but am just learning so take this for what its worth. If you can find a spine on the stems near a node then I would call that spiny amaranth. If no spines, then redroot pigweed. Again, just my guess.

if its pigweed, you need to dig up plant and haul it away, the pigweed in west tennessee is resistant to roundup and is taking over some areas, approximately 200,000 seed per mature plant

Redroot Pigweed doesnt have spines so rules that out. Do a google image search of spiny amaranth.

It is spiny pigweed (Amaranthus spinosus) and is one of the worst culprits in my garden. Get rid of it quick, it will drop thousands of seeds.

Pigweed and Amaranth are the same thing...

Edit: here is some useful info - http://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/BP/WS-44-W.pdf

Spiny amaranth and spiny pigweed are the same plant. I hadnt heard it called spiny pigweed but it is!
