On Tuesday, the Dallas Cowboys signed Alfred Morris, who was a former Redskins running back, to a two-year deal. As of right now, Darren McFadden will still be the starting running back, but Morris will have a crucial role in the running back position as well. During his first three years as a Washington Redskin, Morris rushed for more yards than anybody in the NFL except Marshawn Lynch. The Cowboys expect Alfred Morris to be very productive behind their excellent offensive line. Since the Cowboys picked up a running back, they will most likely not go after Ezekiel Elliot, the running back from Ohio State, in the draft anymore. There are rumors that the Cowboys are looking at free safety Jalen Ramsey from Florida State. The Cowboys lacked success in the secondary the last few years, and they are looking for someone to turn their defense around. Besides a corner back they are also looking at drafting a defensive lineman as well. The Cowboys are in need of players in mainly every position on the defensive side of the ball. I think Morris will be a good fit in the offense for the Cowboys. They need someone to give them that spark to start off the year in a positive way.
