In the NFL, it’s a good thing to have a short memory and for Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris, he forgotten 2012.
Most players want to forget their down years, but Morris says he wants to let go of his outstanding rookie season.
In his first NFL season he had amassed 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns.
The yardage total eclipsed the old Redskins record of 1,516, set by Clinton Portis in 2005.
Morris isn’t looking back at what he did, he’s knows teams are looking for him and its whole new ballgame.
“I keep that drive,” Morris said, via Brady Aymond of the Pensacola News Journal. “I don’t have the sense that I made it, even though I did make it. Last year is in the past, that doesn’t mean anything anymore.”
“It’s such a blessing to go out there and do something, do what you love,” Morris said. ”So many people wish they were in our shoes, so I definitely don’t take it for granted. I knew it wasn’t easy to get there, and there’s so many people who want these jobs.”
“I never look at it as I have to prove anything to anybody, because I’ve been an underdog my whole life,” he said. “I know people underestimate me, and I’m OK with it. I don’t have to prove anything to you. I’m just going out there and doing what I know I can do.
