  2. TE Jason Vander Laan
  3. TE Luke Willson
  4. RB Alfred Morris
  5. RB Thomas Rawls
  6. RB Zach Zenner

Morris, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. He played four seasons in Washington before signing a two-year, $3.5 million contract with the Cowboys in 2016 that included a $1 million base salary for the 2017 season.

Morris signed a one-year deal for the 2018 season with the 49ers in August of last year after a rash of injuries to the position. Dallas signed him to a one-year, $1.2 million contract back in July but was cut loose after the team activated RB Ezekiel Elliott.

In 2018, Morris appeared in 11 games for the 49ers and rushed for 428 yards on 111 carries (3.9 YPC) with two touchdowns to go along with eight receptions for 73 yards receiving.

Zenner, 27, signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of South Dakota State back in 2015. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.58 million contract but the Lions declined to tender him an offer as a restricted free agent and tested the market last year. 

Detroit re-signed Zenner, but was placed on injured reserve coming out of the preseason with a back injury. The Lions would later waive him with an injury settlement only to re-sign him in November. 

Zenner returned to the Lions this past March but was cut loose at the end of August. 

In 2018, Zenner appeared in eight games for the Lions and rushed for 265 yards on 55 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with seven receptions for 56 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.
