Alfred Morris gets a cool million dollars as part of an escalator clause under the CBA
Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris will receive a hefty pay raise this season, based on playing time in his first three years.
Obviously Morris easily hit that figure while serving as the Redskins’ primary back in each of his first three years. Had the escalator not kicked in, Morris would have made $660,000 this season. He made $570,000 in base salary this past season.
Nobody else from the 2012 class will get a similar raise.
Morris, a sixth-round pick in 2012, has started every game in his first three seasons, rushing for a total of 3,962 yards and 28 touchdowns.
This past season, Morris managed only 1,074 yards and 4.02 yards per carry as the run game struggled for a variety of reasons. In his first two season, Morris rushed for a combined 2,888 yards and averaged 4.73 yards per carry.
He will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
