Apparently seeking more running back depth, the New York Giants are reportedly bringing back Alfred Morris.

Tom Pelissero reported Thursday afternoon that Morris will return to the Giants next week.

With Saquon Barkley on PUP and his return date from last season’s torn ACL, the Giants have been seeking depth at running back. They signed Devontae Booker quickly in free agency, added veteran Corey Clement and drafted Gary Brightwell. The Giants also were awarded Ryquell Armstead on waivers, though they ended up cutting him.

Morris, 32, played in nine games for the Giants last season. He rushed 55 times for 238 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and one touchdown.

In a nine-year career, Morris has rushed 1,429 times for 6,173 yards (4.3 yards per carry). Morris was a sixth-round pick by Washington in 2012. He has also played for the Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers.

He joined the Giants last season after Barkley’s injury.
