Despite having a 1,000-yard rusher in Darren McFadden in 2015, the Dallas Cowboys are wanting to bring in another running back for the 2016 season, whether it be through free agency or the NFL Draft. They could be bringing in former rival running back Alfred Morris very soon.
According to Nick Eatman, beat writer for DallasCowboys.com, former Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris is expected to visit with America’s Team on Monday.

The Redskins began to phase Morris out last season as they made Matt Jones a bigger part of their offense in 2015. This may be good for Morris as he has proven that he can be a great player at this level.
Through four years, Alfred Morris rushed for over 4,700 yards and 29 touchdowns, including 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns in the 2012 season.
Despite many fans wanting to see former Ohio State Buckeyes running back, Ezekiel Elliott, in Arlington, Morris could certainly give the Cowboys the piece they have been missing since losing DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles after the 2014 season.
