The Redskins announced today that RB Alfred Morris has been selected to go to the Pro Bowl to presumably replace Marshawn Lynch or Frank Gore who are both playing in the NFC Championship game this Sunday. He was originally designated as an alternate after rushing for the 4th most rushing yards in the league in 2013. His lack of numbers in the receiving game continues to cause him to be undervalued in voter's eyes. Last year, Morris was not chosen for the Pro Bowl, but was selected as a 2nd team All-Pro in his rookie season.
Alfred followed up his spectacular rookie campaign by rushing for 1275 yards, scoring 7 TDs, and averaging 4.6 yards per carry. In his first two seasons in the league he has rushed for 2888 yards, scored 20 TDs, and has an average of 4.7 yards per carry.
The only questions remaining are will FedEx will be covering the cost of having Bentley shipped to Hawaii, and how will Alfred get his Chick-fil-A breakfast there?
The big news keeps rolling in for @trey_deuces. He's going to the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl! #HTTR http://t.co/GNzOkavboV— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) January 17, 2014
