Alfred Morris Biography
Alfred Morris was born December 12, 1988 and is an American football running back for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He was selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Redskins. He played college football for Florida Atlantic University.
Morris was selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. He was officially signed by the Redskins to a four-year, $2.22 million contract with a $154,000 signing bonus on May 6, 2012. After having impressive preseason performances, where he started two out of three of the Redskins' preseason games, he emerged as a dark horse in the running back competition with Roy Helu, Evan Royster, and Tim Hightower. He was guaranteed a spot on the final 53-man roster for the start of the 2012 season after Morris sat out of the last preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the rest of the Redskins' starters.
The day before the season opener, coach Mike Shanahan announced that Morris would be the starting running back. In his NFL debut and first career start, he rushed for 96 yards on 28 carries and scored two touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints. Despite the Redskins losing to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3, Morris put on a great display, recording 78 rushing yards on 17 carries and scoring a touchdown, and was even nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week. The next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he had his first 100-yard game; recording 113 yards on 21 carries and one touchdown. On October 7, versus the Atlanta Falcons, Morris rushed for his second career 100 yard game. He was named Rookie of the Week after his performance in Week 7 against the New York Giants, where he rushed for 120 yards on 22 carries. He would later have three consecutive 100-yard performances starting in the Week 12 game against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
Morris would be named Rookie of the Week for the second time after his performance against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14.
In the final game of the regular season, Morris ran 33 times for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns, setting a Redskins' rookie regular season single-game record (eclipsed only by Timmy Smith's 204 yards in Super Bowl XXII), and broke Clinton Portis’ franchise rushing record for a single season (1516 yards), by reaching 1613 yards. His effort helped lead the Redskins to a 28-18 victory over their division rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, to win the NFC East for the first time since 1999 and earn a playoff spot for the first time since 2007.
