Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media today that he believes rookie running back Alfred Morris has a “big-time future” in the NFL.
Yes, Shanahan likens Morris to another RB he's coached. Won't say who (wink, wink). Adds of Morris: "I think he's got a big-time future."

It sounds like to me that Morris reminds Shanahan of former Broncos great Terrell Davis.
Morris has rushed for 376 yards over the first four weeks of the season and has averaged 4.6 yards per carry.
