Biography

The Dallas Cowboys signed Alfred Morris to pair with Darren McFadden and first round draft pick Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield for the 2016 season, giving the Cowboys rushing attack a stable of talented and experienced runners. Morris was originally drafted in the sixth round (173rd overall) by Washington, and made an immediate impact on his team and the league, rushing for a Redskins record 1,613 yards and a club rookie-record 13 touchdowns.
