Staying productive in the NFL is historically an uphill battle for running backs on the wrong side of 30. So when Sammy Morris first came into the NFL back in 2000, a fifth-round draft choice of the Bills, he figured that a goal of 10 years in the league would be “the best possible scenario”.
Now, it seems, anything is possible for the 33-year-old running back entering Year 11. When asked about his future on a conference call this morning to promote his camp that will take place next week in Foxborough, he said he’d stay “as long as they’ll still have me”.
“Each year is its own entity,” said Morris, who totaled 499 yards of offense in 12 games last season. “As long as I still feel good, as long as a team will still have me, I’m playing for as long as I can. I’ve felt as good about this training camp as any other one.”
