Alfred Morris added to Pro Bowl roster

Redskins Falcons Football AP

Alfred Morris is headed to the Pro Bowl for the first time.

The Redskins announced Friday on Twitter that Morris, their starting tailback, had been added to the Pro Bowl roster. The club also included an Instagram video message from the second-year pro from Florida Atlantic in which he thanked fans for their support.

The 25-year-old Morris rushed for 1,275 yards and seven touchdowns on 276 carries for Washington this season. The 2012 sixth-round pick has started all 32 regular-season games for the Redskins since entering the NFL.

According to Zac Boyer of the Washington Times, Morris will take the Pro Bowl roster spot of either San Francisco’s Frank Gore or Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch. The 49ers and Seahawks square off in Sunday’s NFC’s title game, which means either Gore or Lynch will miss the NFL’s all-star game.

The Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, January 26 in Honolulu and will air on NBC. Kickoff time is 7:30 p.m. Eastern.

    Alfred Morris couldn’t even hold Adrian Peterson’s jockstrap.

    Adrian Peterson is the best RB to ever play.

    Alfred Morris is a perennial loser.

    Seven TDs = pro bowl. Yikes

    The 9th alternate selected to the pro-bowl at RB Alfred Morris. Very prestigious. If he does not want to go we’ll be looking at James Starks-pro bowl RB.

    Congrats Freddie !

    A year ago, I thought it would be good if Alfred Morris followed RGIII’s lead. Nowadays, I’m thinking Alfred Morris should do the leading. A class act and hard worker that RGIII would do well to emulate.

    Jacquizz Rodgers doesn’t feel like participating in the Pro Bowl. Jordan Todman will take his place

    Total yards rushing.

  8. taintedlombardis says: Jan 17, 2014 3:37 PM

    4th in the league in rushing. More yards than Lynch, Gore, Peterson, and Lacy. Higher YPC as well. 2nd in rushing yards only to Peterson going back to last year (when his production would have normally gotten him the rushing crown but for AP….)

    You guys are clueless about football if you think Alfred Morris doesn’t deserve this he was 4th in rushing yards this year (2nd in the NFC) and he was 2nd in the NFL in rushing last year.

  10. nflinsider711 says: Jan 17, 2014 3:41 PM

    2013: 4th most Rushing Yards (pro bowl alternate)
    2012: 2nd most Rushing Yards (no pro bowl)

    Its a shame that he gets disrespected so much. He should of made it last year for sure.

    I am sure Gore will be happy to let you take his spot Alfred

    If there’s at least one player on the redskins that you should respect, it’s Alfred Morris. He’s the most humble guy you’ll ever meet and a class act in the community, not to mention a beast of a football player. This guy never goes down on first contact.

  13. dirtysouthniner says: Jan 17, 2014 3:57 PM

    Man, why all the hate? Morris is a quality back..

  14. potomacplunder says: Jan 17, 2014 4:04 PM

    The stats don’t lie:

    Rushing 4th – ahead of AP, Lynch, Lacey and Gore.
    4.6 average – ahead of AP, Lynch, Gore and Lacey.

    But 8th in attempts – less attempts than McCoy, Lynch, Forte, Lacey, AP and Gore.

    Very deserving of the Pro Bowl but overlooked because on a bad 3-13 team.

    Ray Rice > Alfred Morris
    Baltimore > Landover
    Ravens > R-Words

    Ray Rice is a dual threat RB and has a Superbowl ring, something Morris will never have as long as he is playing for the R-Words.

    Dude can run. No matter how bad we were….Dude can run.

    HTTR # 46

    Well deserved!

  17. johnnyjagfan says: Jan 17, 2014 4:39 PM

    He had a garbage year compared to last season.

  18. dirtydrynn27 says: Jan 17, 2014 4:39 PM

    Overlooked because he is on a 3 & 13 team?
    Also look at Pierre Garcon,dude lead the entire league in receptions!!!!

  19. granadafan says: Jan 17, 2014 5:31 PM

    What a joke. If a deserving player can’t play, then the NFL shouldn’t keep filling their spots with undeserving plaeyrs.

  20. bossbertozzi says: Jan 17, 2014 5:59 PM

    Demarco Murray deserves it more than Lacy, Gore, Morris, and probably Lynch. 5.2 YPC plus 10 touchdowns and 1500 total yards. He was remarkable all-around this year, as he always has been when healthy. He gets no recognition at all.

  21. bossbertozzi says: Jan 17, 2014 6:02 PM

    Plus, Demarco Murray only had 270 touches.

    You haters are so lucky there isn’t a reply option. So here’s my reply all F^UC^K YOU!

  26. rg3skinsgetsome says: Jan 18, 2014 9:45 AM

    D. Murray had one good year and Al has done it twice Murray should not be selected

  27. dsdavila says: Jan 18, 2014 11:24 AM

    Easy choice. Well deserved. If Murray got it instead I’d have no argument, but if you ask head coaches, they’d pick Morris.
