Free agent running back Alfred Morris is set to visit—of all teams—the Cowboys, according to reports.
The visit, which is scheduled for Monday, will be Morris' first with any team since becoming an unrestricted free agent on March 9.
Morris, of course, spent the past four seasons playing for the Redskins, the team that drafted him in the sixth round in 2012. Washington, though, has not actively sought to re-sign the veteran, but has never completely closed the door on bringing him back, either.
After rushing for a Redskins’ record 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns as a rookie, Morris’ production declined each of the next three years. Last season, he shared the load with rookie Matt Jones and posted career lows in carries (202), yards (751), yards per attempt (3.7) and touchdowns (1).
The Cowboys’ corps of running backs currently features Darren McFadden, who rushed for 1,089 yards, Lance Dunbar, Rod Smith and Ben Malena.
Dallas owned the league’s ninth ranked rushing offense last season, averaging 118.1 yards per game and 4.6 yards per carry behind a strong offensive line.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported Dallas’ interest in Morris.
