Patriots, Sammy Morris Agree on One-Year Deal

With four running backs already in the fold (assuming BenJarvus Green-Ellis, a restricted free agent, sticks around), the Patriots added some veteran depth agreeing to re-sign Sammy Morris to a one-year deal on Wednesday.

Morris joins Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead, and rookies Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen, to give the team five backs with diffferent roles. Morris will spend the bulk of his time on special teams, in certain short-yardage situations, and as the team’s only “fullback” (which is truly a dying breed in the NFL).

“Excited to say that Patriots RB Sammy Morris will be back with the Club. We have agreed to terms on a one year deal this afternoon,” Morris’s agent Mark Slough said on his Twitter account.

Thomas Clayton and EricĀ Kettani are the other running backs at Pats’ training camp, meaning seven RBs will be in the fold through the summer.

Morris finished with 56 yards on 20 carries and caught 7 balls for 77 yards last season. He led the team in rushing with a career-high 727 yards on 156 carries in 2008.
