The former Redskin, Morris, agreed to a two-year deal with Washington's division rival, the Dallas Cowboys. The deal is worth $5.5 million, with $2 million in guaranteed money. The plan is to have Darren McFadden as the starting tailback, with Morris backing him up.
The 27-year-old led the Redskins to the NFC East title in 2012, rushing for 1,613 yards that season. The team tweeted out a picture of Morris signing the contract, making the move official.
He busted on to the scene as a rookie, becoming a young fan-favorite, recording a combined 3,962 yards in his first three years, which was second-most in the NFL during that span. He also finished tied with Marshawn Lynch with 110 carries of 10-plus yards.
His production went down this past season, finishing with just 806 yards and one touchdown. He averaged career-lows in yards per carry and yards after contact.
Another running back who has struggled to find consistent success in the league is hoping to do so with his new team, as Trent Richardson has an "unofficial agreement" in tact with the Baltimore Ravens.
This news comes from the mouth of Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh, who hopes no one comes in and takes Richardson away from them. Although, Harbaugh did state "I'm planning on Trent being a Raven right now."
The former Brown, Colt, and Raider was drafted third overall in 2012, but has struggled throughout his career, averaging just 3.3 yards per carry. His conditioning is the main problem many point to, as the Colts reportedly fined Richardson 14 times for missing weight.
Richardson, who did not play in 2015, met with the Ravens earlier this month, but did not leave with a contract. He and coach Harbaugh have since been texting back and forth in negotiations, and despite no name being signed on the dotted line yet, the agreement is in place.
