FRISCO, Texas -- Alfred Morris wont be trying to prove the Redskins wrong when the Dallas running back faces his former team for the first time Sunday. Cheap Rockets Jerseys China .The affable veteran looks forward to renewing acquaintances in Washington, including his old quarterback, and doesnt sit around wondering how a team could give up on him just two years after he was one of the NFLs most productive players over his first two seasons.I know people are like, `You say that, Morris said, anticipating the reaction in the middle of his answer. But its not cliche. This is me being me. I never had to feel like I had to prove anything. I feel like if I have to try to do that, then I wouldnt be being myself.Any other week, Morris will pull for the Washington running game, not revel in how badly it struggles, such as in the season-opening loss to Pittsburgh.And he sent Kirk Cousins a text telling him to make sure to have fun before the first game that they werent in the Redskins backfield together. Thats what he used to tell him in the locker room.Morris is also looking forward to seeing the stadium workers in Washington after forming special bonds with some of them. If he cant see them for dinner Saturday night, hell touch base before the game, just as he used to.In other words, no hard feelings, even though Morris always hoped to spend his career with one team.A lot of people think theyre bigger than the game or `That wont happen to me, Morris said.I accept what it is. They had a different plan. I wasnt a part of that. Im moving on, but I still have the opportunity to keep my dream alive and playing this game as long as I can. It happened to be with a rival team.Morris, whose numbers slipped after Jay Gruden replaced Mike Shanahan as coach, said the Cowboys were a late entry among teams pursuing him in free agency.And the fifth-year back has often said he didnt regret his choice even after Dallas chose Ezekiel Elliott fourth overall in the draft.At that time, Darren McFadden also was healthy after leading the Cowboys in rushing last season. When McFadden broke an elbow in a household accident, the early season plan became clear: Elliott starting, and Morris backing him up.The opening 20-19 loss to the New York Giants was the first time in 65 games that Morris didnt start.Alfred will handle his business like a pro, no matter what happens, Gruden said. He handled his exit here like a pro. He handled being No. 2 there like a pro. Hes going to be a pro no matter how you cut it. Thats the type of guy he is.Morris was the most efficient Dallas back in the opener with seven carries for 35 yards, a 5-yard average. Elliott averaged half that in 20 carries. But it doesnt change Morris answer about his role.Like I always say whether I have one carry or 100 carries, it doesnt matter, said Morris, who ran for nearly 3,000 yards in his first two seasons with the Redskins, making the Pro Bowl both times. I got good work, better than what some backups get, and thats OK with me.Most of Morris production in Washington came with Robert Griffin III at quarterback, particularly their rookie season together in 2012 when the Redskins beat Dallas in the regular-season finale with a playoff berth on the line, highlighted by Morris career-best 200 yards rushing.But Morris formed a bond with Cousins that endures, with their wives remaining close as well.Phenomenal teammate, Cousins said. Never made it about himself and hes a guy who Ill be a friend with for life. Ill be watching him and following his success the rest of his career.Game notes G Ron Leary (groin) was listed as a full participant in practice after being limited before the opener. ... LT Tyron Smith wasnt listed on the injury report and left the game against the Giants briefly with a neck stinger. ... DE Charles Tapper (back) was in pads for the early portion of practice, but listed as a non-participant.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler ;Wholesale Rockets Jerseys . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. Cheap Rockets Jerseys Authentic . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. http://www.cheaprocketsjerseys.com/ . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. Canberra coach Ricky Stuart says he couldnt help but let Sam Williams go to England, believing the NRL halfback deserves to be playing first-grade fulltime.Williams turned down a one-year offer to stay at the Raiders to take up a deal with Super League outfit Wakefield for 2017.The 25-year-old only played eight games for the Green Machine this year, but stepped up when they needed him most.He filled in at No.7 when Aidan Sezer was injured at the start of the season, and replaced Blake Austin at five-eighth at the back-end of the year - including their qualifying final loss to Cronulla.He is the first Raider to take up an opportunity elsewhere since their dream run to the preliminary finals, with speculation Paul Vaughan and Shaun Fensom might follow suit.Stuart was resigned to losing Williams, named NSW Cup player of the year, given his position in the pecking order.He deserves to go somewhere to play first grade - whether thats NRL or Super League, Stuart said on Friday.I was very, very privileged and fortunate to have a first-grade player as my back up to Aidan and Blake.He did a wonderful job for us in doing that this year and was a big part of our progress in the competition.Sezer was sad to see Williams go, but said his move provedd how successful the Raiders had been at creating depth. Cheap NBA Jerseys. Thats what the clubs built over the last few years - the competition for spots and the depth of positions, he said.I guess it shows on the field, the success that was derived from it, this year.Hopefully we can push on, keep building a good squad and have great years to come.Sezer was in no doubt that the pain of losing to Melbourne in last weekends grand final qualifier would spur the side on next season, with his eyes already firmly on getting to the 2017 decider.Were all very disappointed and its going to take a long time to get over it, but you cant really dwell on it, he said.We fell down one step short, hopefully we get to the big one next year.The Raiders launched whats believed to be a world-first competition for members on Friday, offering a $500,000 prize to those who correctly predict how many total points the team score over the 2017 regular season, how many they concede, as well as how many tries for and against.The club hopes the promotion, backed by Canberra company Austbrokers, will help boost membership from 15,000 to 20,000. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
