The Cowboys running game in 2015 was a mess.
The team lost league leading rusher Demarco Murray, and didn't add anyone last year in the draft or in free agency to fill the void. As a result, the running game suffered huge setbacks.
Apparently the Cowboys have learned from their mistakes, and made a move to acquire former Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris via free agency this offseason.
The deal is for two years, worth up to $5.5 million, including $2 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Morris, 27, rushed for a franchise-record 1,613 yards as the Redskins captured the NFC East title in 2012. In his first three years combined, Morris rushed for more yards (3,962) than any back in the NFL except for Seattle's Marshawn Lynch.
If the Cowboys want to make a deep post season run, it will be due to a balanced attack offensively. Quarterback Tony Romo and wideout Dez Bryant are coming off injuries. Giving them a break at spots in the game will help this team stay fresh when it matters most.
Do you think the addition of Alfred Morris makes the Redskins the favorite to win the NFC East in 2016?
The cowboys won't win anything until they get rid of Romo
They def look stronger with him on the squad!
