Alfred Morris has established himself as a talented running back for the Washington Redskin and now he wants an even larger role.
Morris now wants to make an impact in the passing game after catching just 20 balls total over his first two seasons in the league. He believes an increased role in the passing game can make the Skins that much more dangerous.
“My focus is building confidence in the quarterbacks as well as the coaches to let them know I can catch,” Morris told ESPN.com’s John Keim. “I know I can catch the ball.”
“I can get better (at route-running),” Morris continued. “Sometimes you get that linebacker that’s real grabby and how to get away from them and set them up is something I never had much experience doing.”
Alfred Morris has just put defenses on notice.
