Arizona Cardinals signing running back Alfred Morris per report

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals released linebacker Ramik Wilson today and will likely in a corresponding move bring in Alfred Morris.

According to Adam Schefter, the Cardinals will sign the veteran running back.

Morris had three 1,000 yard seasons to start his career.

In fact, in his first three seasons, Morris ran the ball 876 times for an astonishing 3,962 yards and 28 touchdowns.

From there it has been a steady decline and ended up seeing Morris becoming a primary backup running back who can give you spot starts when needed.

Morris since his first three seasons in Washington has 1,969 yards on 497 carries.

Morris in his three year prime averaged 4.5 yards per carry, while as a backup he has averaged 3.9 yards per carry.

The interesting thing is, Morris is primarily a runner, as his season high in receptions is 17.

The 30-year old Morris has spent time in Washington, Dallas and San Francisco in his career.

Welcome to the desert.
