Redskins running back Alfred Morris, a true mustachian
« on: September 09, 2015, 08:45:25 PM »
Pictured left: ‪#‎Redskins‬ RB Alfred Morris' ride today (his bike).
Pictured right: His normal ride - a Mazda 626 named "Bentley."



I love seeing articles about athletes who choose modesty over outrageousness. Here's a great one:

Looked up his salary, too. If he wanted, he could be FIRE before the season starts.

Quote
Alfred Morris signed a 4 year, $2,223,100 contract with the Washington Redskins, including a $123,100 signing bonus, $123,100 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $555,775.

Seriously, he might actually be a mustachian! Hopefully he lets us know if he has some anonymous screen name.

He's completely badass. Hats off to the man for not succumbing to the soft-promoting allure of the motor carriage.

I saw this earlier today as well.  How cool is that?  I love seeing pro athletes continuing their training during their commute.

OMG!  I have quasi-personal story about this!

His car was actually re-furbished by Mazda a few years ago. My boyfriend used to work for Mazda corporate as was involved in this re-furbish, which they did as a marketing/publicity thing when they found out that he was still driving his old vehicle (it got a lot of press in the DC area). 

It actually cost Mazda A LOT of money to fix it up because they had to re-make a lot of the parts specially since they aren't in production anymore (and they didn't want to use salvaged parts) or custom-make some of the new features.  He was there when they did the reveal for Alfred Morris and he was so genuinely excited and grateful.  Said he was a really nice guy and thanked them all a hundred times.  Such a cool story!

That's an awesome story. I think I have a new favorite NFL player and his name is Alfred Morris.

This is why I drafted him on Tuesday for my fantasy team.

Also he fell to the 4th round and was a good value :)

Here's an article on Ryan Broyles who only lives on $60,000 a year while having a $3.6m, 4 yr contract. The article also lists other players such as Morris, AJ Francis, and Rob Gronkowski.

I wrote an article for my website on Gronk's frugality. It's really surprising you know because he has this hard core party boy image, one you'd associate with lavish spending. It's nice to see really big name athletes using money responsibly.

So proud of Alfred though. He's from my hometown of Pensacola, FL. Really great and humble guy. Doug Baldwin and Trent Richardson also come from there as well. They all played football for rival schools back when I was in high school who would've thought we'd have three guys in the NFL one day.
