New Cowboys running back Alfred Morris might have a new contract and a lot of money, but that’s not stopping him from keeping the car that he once got for $2 as a college junior.

Fox Sports has the story about Morris.

The Dallas Cowboys inked running back Alfred Morris to a two-year, $3.5 million deal earlier this offseason. It’s the second NFL contract Morris has received after being a sixth-round pick in the 2012 draft. Because of the fact that he was taken so low four years ago, he wasn’t signed to a lucrative deal like many first-round selections are.

He did, however, earn more than $3 million in those four seasons with the Washington Redskins. And now with $1.8 million guaranteed coming his way, Morris has earned himself plenty of money. Yet, he still won’t give up his 1991 Mazda 626, which he bought from his pastor for $2 as a college junior.

“Yes, I still have my car,” Morris said via Five Points Blue. “I still drive ‘Bentley’ which is what I call my car even though she’s not really a Bentley. It’s always going to be my baby and I’m going to drive it ’til she dies.”

It’s a great story about a player who hasn’t forgotten where he came from.
