Alfred Morris Replacing Marshawn Lynch

Posted Jan 20, 2014

The National Football League made official tonight that running back Alfred Morris has been selected to the 2014 Pro Bowl in place of Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch.

The National Football League made official tonight that running back Alfred Morris has been selected to the 2014 Pro Bowl in place of Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch.

The annual contest of the NFL's best will take place Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

The selection is the first of Morris’s career. He joins tackle Trent Williams as the team’s Pro Bowl representatives for the 2013 season.

Morris becomes the first Redskins running back selected to the Pro Bowl since Clinton Portis in 2008, and his selection is the 11th by a Redskins running back since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger (three by Larry Brown, two each by Earnest Byner and Stephen Davis, and one each by Mike Thomas, Terry Allen and Clinton Portis).

In 2013, Morris rushed for 1,275 rushing yards, the 11th most in a season in team history, on 276 carries (4.6 avg.). Morris rushed for 2,888 yards across the 2012-13 seasons, the ninth-most rushing yardage of any running back in his first two NFL seasons.

His 2,888 rushing yards since 2012 are second-most in the NFL, and Morris is one of only four backs in the NFL to have surpassed 1,250 rushing yards in each of the last two seasons.

Morris, 25, was honored by the Redskins on Friday as the team’s recipient of the Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his community service and volunteer efforts as well as his excellence on the field.

With the Redskins’ selections of Morris and Williams this year, the team has had at least one Pro Bowl player for 20 straight seasons.

The only year Washington has not had a Pro Bowler in team history was 1993.
