Alfred Morris will be asked to play a larger role in the passing game, according to Jay Gruden. But we're not talking Darren Sproles II here.
Gruden isn’t talking about having the third-year running back step into the role they may have envisioned for Darren Sproles, the Saints running back who was rumored to be going to the Redskins before the Eagles traded for him. Sproles caught at least 70 passes each of the three years he was in New Orleans.
But he does want Morris to at least give the defense something to think about when he’s in there on a pass play.
