Former Calgary Stampeders running back Romar Morris is staging in his pro football comeback in The Spring League.
Morris will play for the Aviators.
The development league is holding a six-team, four-week season in a bubble in San Antonio, Texas in October and November. Morris played two seasons for the Stamps, both ended with him rupturing his Achilles tendon. The 27-year-old hasn’t been on a football field since the latest setback which occurred in August 2019.
Morris rushed 90 times for 376 yards and four touchdowns while adding 24 receptions for 167 yards and two majors in 12 games for Calgary. He did contribute to the Stampeders Grey Cup-winning season in 2018 when Calgary went 13-5 in the regular season on the way to capturing the CFL title.
The five-foot-10, 192-pound runner went unselected in the 2016 NFL draft, however he did sign an undrafted free agent contract with the New York Jets. He suffered a shoulder injury during the pre-season which required and it put him on injured reserve for his entire rookie season.
The University of North Carolina product has high end athletic ability, 4.36 forty-yard time, and 38-inch vertical. If Morris can stay healthy he could be a difference-maker.
