ROY HELU RUMORS & GOSSIP

Redskins' rookie RB Matt Jones could take over for Roy Helu as passing down back

When the Washington Redskins selected running back Matt Jones in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, some wondered if selecting Jones was redundant. At 6-foot-2 and 231 pounds, Jones is a big running back even for NFL standards. Of course, the Redskins already have a between-the-tackles bruiser in running back Alfred Morris. However, the Redskins saw something different in Jones...

Camp Preview: Roy Helu is set to play a huge role in the Redskins offense

It seems as if the general consensus is that Alfred Morris somehow had a down year last season. That simply isn’t true. Morris was just as much a beast in 2013 as he was in 2012. I mean, the guy ran for 1,275 yards and seven touchdowns, on 4.6 yards per carry, last season. That’s very good. Really, the only reason he didn’t reach his rookie numbers is the lack of carries...
