Report: Alfred Morris, Cowboys Agree To Deal

Posted Mar 22, 2016

A full-time starter for the Redskins since being taken in the 2012 NFL Draft, Alfred Morris will be moving on, as he's reportedly set to join the Dallas Cowboys.

A full-time starter for the Redskins since being taken in the 2012 NFL Draft, Alfred Morris will be moving on, as he's reportedly set to join the Dallas Cowboys.

After four incredibly productive seasons, highlighted by setting the franchise’s single-season rushing record mark, running back Alfred Morris has signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Morris was originally selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft with the 173rd-overall pick.

At first, he was expected to make any sort of impact for the Redskins, as some even had the Florida Atlantic product pegged as more of a fullback than his natural position of running back.

But during the 2012 training camp and preseason schedule, Morris surpassed Tim Hightower, Evan Royster and Roy Helu Jr. among others to earn a spot in the starting lineup for the regular season opener against the New Orleans Saints.

Morris would stick with the starters, and by the season’s end, he surpassed Clinton Portis for the most rushing yards for a Redskins running back in a single season, as his 200 yards in an NFC East-clinching victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the regular season finale upped him to 1,613 yards.

He also finished the season with 11 touchdowns, five of which came in the last three games.

Returning as the starter during the 2013 season, Morris once again cracked the 1,000-yard mark, as he totaled 1,275 yards and seven touchdowns while earning the first of two Pro Bowl appearances.

In 2014, Morris finished the season with 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns.

Despite once again being the starter for the 2015 season, Morris was used less frequently, as the team used more of a committee-style plan for the position, as rookie Matt Jones, Chris Thompson and even Pierre Thomas each go their number called, too.

He would record just 751 rushing yards and one touchdown, coming against the Chicago Bears in early December.

“There’s not one negative thing I can say about Alfred Morris as a person and as a player,” Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said at February’s NFL Combine. “When you talk about running backs the most important things you talk about are ball security and durability. He’s been durable and he’s protected the football. He’s been very productive.  And those are three things that are hard to say about any running back for the amount of time he’s played the position.”

With Morris’ departure, the Redskins will move forward with Jones, Thompson, Silas Redd Jr. and Mack Brown for now, with a potential return for Thomas not out of the question.

Jones will also move up the depth chart in place of Morris in the starting lineup.

We drafted him with that intent [of being a full-time running back],” Gruden said. “He's a big, physical runner.”
