Sammy Morris RB DAL Dec 13 '11
Cowboys will sign RB Sammy Morris.
The move isn't official yet, but Jerry Jones confirmed it will happen. At age 34, Morris will be a strict backup to every-down back Felix Jones. The ex-Patriot has averaged 4.01 yards per carry on 93 rushes since the end of the 2008 season.

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys will work out free agent RB Sammy Morris on Tuesday, and plan to sign the 12-year veteran.
Morris will become a Cowboy as long as no issues arise during his workout. One of the Patriots' final cuts, Morris appeared in all 16 games for the Pats a year ago. He carried the ball only 20 times, however, and has gone for just 375 yards on 93 totes since the end of the 2008 season. He won't be a candidate for a big workload behind Felix Jones, and should make most of his contributions in the passing game. He's a poor PPR league flier.

The Chiefs worked out free agent running backs Sammy Morris, Jalen Parmele, Dimitri Nance and Chris Jennings this week, according to Scout.com.
No one was signed. Despite Jamaal Charles' injury, the Chiefs have four backs currently on their roster capable of carrying the ball. If one of them flops or gets hurt, they'll then likely turn to the street.

Patriots released RB Sammy Morris.
Morris is a highly-respected veteran, but appeared to have nothing left last season, carrying the ball 20 times for just 56 yards. In the league since 2000, he's gone for 2,955 yards and 26 touchdowns on 708 career carries. It's quite possible he's played his final down.
