    Should Dallas Re-sign Alfred Morris After The Season?

    Make no mistake, these next two games against the and are big for the . These games are pretty much must wins in order to keep their playoff hopes alive, but the outcome of these two contests might depend on the production of one particular player… .

    Alfred Morris is coming off his best game as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Last Thursday against his former team the , Morris rushed for 127 yards on 27 carries. He probably couldn't have picked a better time to have a breakout game, especially considering how much the Cowboys has been struggling here recently.

    We all know that the Cowboys offense revolves around the and that without they have looked lost. But thankfully, Alfred Morris has proven he is more than capable of handling the workload until Elliott can return against the on December 24, .

    Once Elliott returns, he will likely take over as the bell cow for the Cowboys. So, nothing is guaranteed for Alfred Morris after these next two games and his future with the team could be over as well. But, should Dallas consider re- #46 after the season?

    RB Alfred MorrisIt's still really early to get into which of their the Dallas Cowboys may or may not want to re-sign, but the depth behind Ezekiel Elliott at the running back position is pretty thin after this season.

    is returning in 2018, but I'm not sure if the Dallas Cowboys will feel comfortable enough using him as Elliott's primary backup. He hasn't exactly proven he is capable of handing those responsibilities yet, although he has continued to improve during his time in Dallas.

    Alfred Morris of course has proven that he is capable of stepping in and producing without Ezekiel Elliott in the lineup. But, Morris isn't without his limitations. He isn't the best pass protector and is limited in what he can do in the receiving game. This could lead the Cowboys to turn to the draft to find a younger/cheaper option.

    The running back position in the 2018 looks to be deep at the RB position, which doesn't exactly bode well for Morris' chances to be re-signed by the Cowboys. In fact, I have a hard time seeing back in Dallas at all.

    You see, Morris would cost more than any rookie RB the Cowboys bring in, even on a vet minimum contract. Unfortunately, money speaks in the NFL.

    The only way I see Alfred Morris receiving a second contract with the Dallas Cowboys is if they fail to add a rookie through the draft capable of backing up Elliot in 2018. Morris would likely become an option then if he is still available on the open market. But, that also depends on who else is available.

    So, we could possibly be seeing the last of Alfred Morris in a Dallas Cowboys . That means these next two games could be the only time we see him on the field. We might want to appreciate him while he is still here, because I have a hard time seeing him back in Dallas after the season.

    Should Dallas re-sign Alfred Morris after the season?

    That’s BS!

    I also believe this draft is deep at RB and I am hoping we find our #2 guy in this draft. That being said, I worry a bit about Zeke and can only hope that he now has the maturity and wisdom to stay away from any situation that might compromise his future. So, I feel the need to ensure we take a guy with the potential to be a #1. Bryce Love comes to mind. The news was quiet on him early in the season but as he has continued it has gotten to the point that his name was mentioned in Heisman convo. Of course that will go to Mayfield. There are some other guys on my list but if we could get Love in round 3 that would be great!

    I want the money for Morris to go to signing Hitchens over Alfred. We have Irving, D-Law and Zack as priority signings with Hitch at #4. I hope we can fit Anthony in. I’m an Iowa Cowboy fan.I still want to get an ILB in the 1st three rounds. If they franchise D-Law t and Randy Gregory comes back clean, then DE becomes less of a question mark in the draft. I’d like to see a shutdown corner in the 1st, like Joshua Jackson (oh yeah, Iowa Hawkeye), otherwise grab Roguam Smith ILB. I wonder, after NFL teams have seen Alfred in these last few games, if we might be able to get a late draft pick for him. (Wishful thinking). I think they use the draft for a RB (3rd or 4th). We may have two 3rd round picks and a couple of 4th round picks with the compensatory picks so it is feasible. I look at Atlanta and New Orleans. They both have a 2 prong RB attack. Why not Dallas?

    I don’t trust Zeke to stay out of trouble.

    If he get’s in trouble with the law, I could see the NFL leveling another suspension, in which case having Morris to step-in would come in very handy.

    As to whether or not we can afford him, I’ll leave that up to others to answer.
