Free agent RB Alfred Morris said goodbye to the Redskins and their fans in an Instagram post Sunday.
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
The overall expectation has been that the Redskins were going to move on from Morris and allow him to test the open market in the coming days, so it appears though he is ready for the next chapter in his NFL career.
Morris could end up being a decent value signing for a team looking to bolster their depth at the running back position.
Morris, 27, played out his four-year, $2,223,100 rookie contract with the Redskins and will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.
In 2015, Morris appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins and ran for 751 yards on 202 carries (3.7 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 55 yards receiving and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 52 running back out of 68 qualifying players.
