Redskins RB Alfred Morris ready for power running game
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Running back Alfred Morris has excelled during his first three seasons in the NFL, and this year, the Redskins' back is eager to get the ball as the team transitions from a zone-blocking scheme to a power style, per ESPN.com. 

The strategy requires less cutting and more downhill running, something Morris, who has rushed for nearly 4,000 yards, is familiar with from his time in college. 

"I feel I'm better at downhill plays anyway," he said. "You know what's coming. It's a knockout, drag-out style of play. I don't shy away from contact. It's right up my alley. I thoroughly enjoy it."

Matt Jones' arrival won't change Redskins RB Alfred Morris' role
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

It doesn't hurt to have more than one quality running back to tote the ball in the NFL. But when a solid runner is taken in the first few rounds of the draft, it can be an ominous sign for a back used to being the primary ball carrier. 

That's not the case with Redskins running back Alfred Morris. Though the Redskins drafted Florida's Matt Jones in the third round, coach Jay Gruden said there are no plans to change Morris' role in the offense. 

"Alfred won't be affected," Gruden said, via ESPN.com. "Alfred's still the running back here. He's had three great seasons and that won't change. But to add another guy that can come in here and pound the rock a little bit doesn't hurt anything. It'll help Alfred in that regard, taking some carries off him. For the most part Alfred will be getting the bulk of the carries and Matt will get some too, obviously."

In a tough season for everyone on the Redskins, Morris ran got 1,074 yards and eight touchdowns. Jones provides some insurance as a big-bodied 6-2, 226-pound back that could actually help Morris this season. 

"He's a little bit different than what we've had around here," Gruden said.

Redskins leave RG3 off of letter to season-ticket owners
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Either it was a simple mistake or an indication of how the Redskins truly feel about quarterback Robert Griffin III.

In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.

"Head Coach Jay Gruden, new General Manager Scot McCloughan, and Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of Ryan Kerrigan, DeSean Jackson, plus Pro Bowlers Trent Williams and Alfred Morris. The Redskins are poised to rebound next season!" the letter read, via The Washington Post.

Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.

Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.

Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
