Alfred Morris Drives Around In A $2 Car That I’m Sure Was Previously Used For Non-Team Sanctioned Activities

The Dallas Cowboys inked running back Alfred Morris to a two-year, $3.5 million deal earlier this offseason. It’s the second NFL contract Morris has received after being a sixth-round pick in the 2012 draft. Because of the fact that he was taken so low four years ago, he wasn’t signed to a lucrative deal like many first-round selections are.

He did, however, earn more than $3 million in those four seasons with the Washington Redskins. And now with $1.8 million guaranteed coming his way, Morris has earned himself plenty of money. Yet, he still won’t give up his 1991 Mazda 626, which he bought from his pastor for $2 as a college junior. 

“Yes, I still have my car,” Morris said via Five Points Blue. “I still drive ‘Bentley’ which is what I call my car even though she’s not really a Bentley. It’s always going to be my baby and I’m going to drive it ’til she dies.”

And we thought NFL players only cared about sex and money and doing drugs? Well shame on us. Because Alfred Morris is out here driving a car that 100 % was used for orgies in the 80’s. Why else would a pastor sell it for $2? He either was the worst negotiator of all-time or needed to get rid of evidence that he broke his religious vows for a backseat romp on I-97. Now I’m not saying this car’s a lemon, but if you can’t count on one hand how many kids were conceived in the backseat you probably shouldn’t openly advertise the car facts.

But Alfred Morris doesn’t care about silly things like “leather seats” or “an engine that works” or “picking up chicks.” His frugality should be commended and his lack of flashiness should be taught in schools. I’m sure this type of attitude translate to the gridiron as well. Morris isn’t the type of flashy back trying to break open a long run outside the numbers. He’s perfectly happy taking 3 or 4 yards per carry and moving the sticks. Just don’t ask him to come out on third down as a pass catcher because he’s not the type to pad his receiving stats.

P.S

Alf may not want to park his car in a public lot. Could lead to some misunderstandings. Just ask George Costanza.
