The Dallas cowboys have decided that Darren McFadden will be their backup in 2017.
According to team writer Nick Eatman, the Cowboys have re-signed the running back to a one-year deal, making him the team's No.2 running back behind starter Ezekiel Elliott.
The signing likely means that the Cowboys will be moving on from ball-carrier Alfred Morris, who the team has been looking to trade since the beginning of March. Morris struggled in spot duty behind Elliott in his first season, and the team has more confidence in McFadden moving forward.
Morris has little dead cap money on his contract, and will be a prime candidate for release.
