Last year, Alfred Morris explained his touchdown celebration as a tribute to a youth baseball team he met during OTAs last spring. He used the pantomimed home run move throughout the season, and now it had been immortalized in video game form. The celebration has been included in Madden NFL 25, as seen in the video above.
In other Alfred Morris news, last month the Redskins received a signed jersey from legendary running back Earl Campbell. According to the Redskins team blog, Morris returned the favor, sending Campbell a jersey with the following message:
“To Earl: I’m privileged to be able to stand on the shoulders of a giant such as yourself.”
Campbell tweeted his appreciation today, with well wishes for Morris.
I wish Alfred Morris All the best this year and it was an honor exchanging jerseys. Thank you so very much…. http://t.co/dnlGkdery9
