ROY HELU RUMORS & GOSSIP

After years of being the handcuff to Alfred Morris, Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. is heading towards free agency. “I’m very excited,” Helu Jr. about his future. “Because it’s the first time I’ve gone into an offseason where I get to see what else is out there and I’m not restricted to a rookie pay scale.” Helu Jr. told the Redskins team website that “there’s...

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...
