This isn't necessarily the kind of news you're looking for just one day after the Washington Redskins were set to reportedly host free agent cornerback Antoine Winfield. But at this point, we're all aware that getting news out of Redskins Park is like chatting it up with the guys in charge of Area 51.

It's a covert and cryptic operation head coach Mike Shanahan is running down in Ashburn.

In the meantime, fan favorite Alfred Morris is getting busy with some slick dance moves in his recent filming of an Eastern Motors commercial.

For those that live in the DMV area, you know all about Eastern Motors, how your job is your credit and their television ads featuring Redskins players.

For those that don't live in the area, Eastern Motors is a used car dealership with five locations in the Washington metro area. They specialize in getting bad credit car-buyers approved, even after other dealerships have turned them down.

Over the years, former Redskins players such as Jason Campbell, Antwaan Randle El and, most notably, Clinton Portis have graced the television screen by way of funny dances and mouthing the lyrics to Eastern Motors' catchy jingle in the company's commercials.

It didn't take long for Eastern to give Morris a call. After a stellar rookie season in 2012 that netted him 1,613 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns, he is the newest addition to the Eastern Motors team.

Morris received a lot of attention last season after it was reported the then-rookie was still rolling around in his 1991 Mazda 626 Sedan—his very first car.

Hoping that his "Bentley" wasn't going away for good, Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post (video) was on scene for the filming of Morris' new commercial and confirms that the running back's storied automobile isn't going anywhere.

In fact, as Steinberg notes, the Mazda is set to make a cameo appearance.

Amidst the stressful and disheartening free agency period for a team smacked with an $18 million cap penalty, it's nice to see fun lovin' running back Alfred Morris keeping it loose and shakin' a leg. Just his style.
