The report says the Redskins will move away from the zone-blocking scheme run under former coach Mike Shanahan and incorporate more of a power game. Morris was familiar with a traditional running scheme in college at Florida Atlantic, per the report.
Now, there is a concern for Morris since he rushed for 2,888 yards over his first two seasons under Shanahan, which were more than any other player in the league during that time except Minnesota's Adrian Peterson. And Gruden likes his running backs to be able to catch the ball — something Morris did only 20 times during his first two seasons.
But Morris should still remain in a prominent role on offense and be a candidate for 270-plus carries like he had last season.
"As far as him running in the pocket, quarterbacks make those decisions, not me," Gruden explained. "On game day, it's hard for me to tell them, 'Stay in the pocket -- don't scramble!' But we'll have some designed plays where we get him outside, let him use his legs, obviously it would be stupid not to."
Gruden did add that RG3 has made "some serious strides" this spring in knowing when to throw and when to bail out of a pass play and run.
