Redskins running back Alfred Morris was gifted with a refurbished "Bentley." Mazda gave Morris's beloved 21-year-old car a makeover for free.
Redskins running back Alfred Morris is getting his beloved "Bentley" back.
No, it's not that kind of Bentley.
Back in July, Mazda agreed to refurbish Morris's 1991 Mazda 626.
Despite signing a four-year contract worth more than $2.2 million last year, Morris elected to keep the car, which is almost as old as the 24-year-old running back. He's said the car serves as a symbol of his career path from humble beginnings at Florida Atlantic to finishing second in the NFL with 1,613 rushing yards in his rookie season.
"It's not 'Pimp My Ride' or anything," Morris said. "No big rims or fish tanks in the back."
Mazda got "Bentley" back in factory new condition, fixing a cracked dashboard, fine-tuning the engine and working on the transmission to make sure the NFL star doesn't end up on the side of the road.
