The Washington Redskins are likely going to release a lot of their free agents in the coming days and it looks like one of the casualties in the early spring cleaning process is running back Alfred Morris.
The team has let him know that they may not be re-signing him and he even said so himself in an interview with ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. He took to Instagram on Saturday to post an emotional goodbye message for Redskins fans.
Man the last 4 years have flown by. I’ve met a lot of great people, made a lot of great memories, and was given countless opportunities to live my dream and better myself and my family. With the unknown getting closer I just wanted to take a second and thank the entire @Redskins organization for an amazing four years. From Mr. Dan Snyder to Mrs. B.J Blanchard who works the front desk and always greets everyone with a smile. No matter what happens I will always be apart of #RedskinsNation and a special thanks to all the fans and their abundance of love, support, and loyalty y’all make this game what is #HTTR
Morris was drafted by the Redskins in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He has racked up 4,713 yards and 29 touchdowns in those four seasons. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards in three of his four seasons.
Morris is certainly going to be missed by many of the Redskins fans as he looks to continue his career elsewhere. He should be able to come in and win a starting job with just about any team in the NFL.
