No. 46 in the burgundy and gold helmet on Sunday got one final opportunity to break a few tackles before officially getting his offseason underway.

Redskins running back Alfred Morris, playing for Team Carter, played in his second-straight Pro Bowl, collecting 29 yards rushing and receiving in the 32-28 Team Irvin victory at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Here’s a recap of the Redskins’ social media activity during the game, beginning with an injury update on left tackle Trent Williams, who was supposed to play Sunday for Team Irvin in his third-straight Pro Bowl appearance:

Morgan Moses had many aspirations growing up. Two of his long-term goals were met recently.

The first of being a professional football player was achieved a few weeks back when he was selected by the Washington Redskins with the 66th-pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. The second also came slightly true during the month of May.

Graduating from the University of Virginia with a degree in anthropology shortly after wrapping up rookie minicamp activities, the 6-7 rookie said that he pursued the degree initially thanks to his love with a certain movie hero.

“I always wanted to be the next Indiana Jones,” Morgan said with a chuckle this afternoon. “I took a couple classes at UVA (in anthropology) and I fell in love with one of the professors and it just all kept going from there. I’m now on the track to be an archaeologist.

“It’s a career after the career.”

Trent Williams on Jason Hatcher: Yes Lord!

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 14, 2014 – 4:01 pm



Like the pocket for Robert Griffin III for the past two years, the battle for the best reaction to the Redskins signing Jason Hatcher came down to Trent Williams and DeMarcus Ware.

Williams rejoiced when he found out the Redskins offensive line would not have to block the 31-year old Pro Bowler in 2014. Read more »

Gruden Gets Popcorn Ready For Williams

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 24, 2014 – 1:22 pm



I like to imagine Jay Gruden sitting in a velvet burgundy director’s chair – J.G. monogrammed in golden thread – and running through film of every Redskins snap from 2013 with nary a heavy eyelid.

But that has to get tedious even for a guy with 10 fires and few cans of Diet Coke in his belly. Enter Trent Williams.

In an exclusive interview with Redskins.com at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, Gruden told Larry Michael he has the pleasure of watching one of the NFL’s most entertaining linemen on tape. Read more »

Trent Williams Graded NFL’s No. 1 LT

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 19, 2014 – 2:38 pm



In football parlance, you could call Trent Williams a road grader.

The four-year NFL veteran is the rare zone blocker with the power to drive defenders away from the line. What makes Williams a two-time Pro Bowler is his ability to be equally deft moving backwards in pass protection.

With these factors in mind, Bleacher Report NFL Draft Lead Writer Matt Miller graded Williams as the best left tackle in the NFL in his evaluation of game’s 35 best blockers.

Trent Williams, Brian Orakpo Saved From Each Other At 2014 NFL Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 12:33 pm

An absent Redskin switched teams due to a last-minute trade in Honolulu that ensured all three of Washington’s representatives would play for Deion Sanders in the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.

Jerry Rice traded Brian Orakpo, who had not yet arrived in Hawaii, to Sanders for NFL sack leader Robert Mathis in the final move of the Pro Bowl draft. Per the rules of the new draft format, Rice was allowed to force a trade for any non-quarterback because his team picked second.  Read more »

Deion Sanders, Jerry Rice Slept On Alfred Morris In The Pro Bowl Draft

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 11:11 am

Once again, the talent evaulators forgot about Alfred Morris.

Leading up to Sunday, the NFL has done everything it can to make the 2014 Pro Bowl a spectacle. Deion Sanders has grown snow-white scruff that plays nicely off his team’s neon key lime motif. Jerry Rice got up in Sanders’ grill like Richard Sherman at a prefight weigh-in with Floyd Mayweather. Sadly, there were no dropkicks.

The two Hall-of-Famers selected their all-star teams Wednesday in the second day of the unconferenced Pro Bowl draft. Neither picked Alfred Morris, who was assigned to Team Sanders in the 19th round because Rice had reached his position limit with three running backs.  Read more »

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 9:00 pm

Trent Williams

Congratulations to Trent Williams for earning his second consecutive Pro Bowl selection. The offensive tackle was an integral piece of  a Redskins offensive line that has started every game together and blocked Washington to the NFL’s fourth-most yards rushing.

In addition to Williams, four Redskins made the newly formatted all-star game as alternates available to replace starters sitting out with injuries or playing in the Super Bowl.  Read more »

Pete Prisco Considers Pierre Garcon, Brian Orakpo And Trent Williams For Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 2:58 pm

Pierre Garcon

The NFL won’t release its official list of 2014 Pro Bowl selections until 9 p.m. ET Friday night, but CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist Pete Prisco already has his personal list available.

Prisco picked Pierre Garçon and Trent Williams as backups for the first unconferenced Pro Bowl. He thinks Brian Orakpo just missed the cut.  Read more »
