One thing people most closely associate NFL players with (aside from them being much larger than the average human) is money. While the sport may not be as generous with salary as the other major leagues, the majority of football players still make a healthy living. And with that healthy living comes many perks.
One such example is the ability to buy expensive cars. Redskins fans know, however, that Alfred Morris is not like most of his peers, because he doesn't really value pricey automobiles. More proof for that statement emerged Wednesday.
Washington's running back drew a lot of attention a few years ago for his "Bentley," which, in fact, wasn't really a Bentley at all: That was the nickname he gave to his 1991 Mazda, a dingy set of wheels that he chose to keep driving after making it to the NFL despite his pay raise. Apparently, though, Morris has taken his lack of interest in costly whips to a whole new level this season:

That image is simply fantastic. The fact that the 26-year-old insists on parking his bike in his specially reserved parking spot, even though it could easily be leaned up against a wall or kept inside the team's facility, is just great. And when you compare Morris' ride to the Mercedes and Jeep in the background, the ridiculousness of the whole situation is magnified even further.
For the fourth-year pro, 2015 is a vital year: His rushing numbers have decreased each campaign after a record-setting 2012. Therefore, #46 will look to get back in high gear starting this Sunday — something he's probably gotten pretty used to now that he bikes to Redskins Park.
