Cowboys agree to terms on 2-year deal with Morris
DALLAS (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with running back Alfred Morris.
The 27-year-old Morris started every game in his first four NFL seasons with the Washington Redskins, racking up 4,713 yards rushing and 29 touchdowns. Morris tormented the Cowboys, running for 710 yards and seven touchdowns in eight games against them.
Morris adds more talent to the Dallas backfield, which already includes Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar. Morris has three 1,000-yard rushing seasons on his resume and two trips to the Pro Bowl.
His departure means the Redskins could turn to Matt Jones as their every-day back, bring back Pierre Thomas to share the carries, or look to the draft for backfield help.
