Alfred Morris, an NFL running back who recently signed a two-year, $3.5 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys, probably owns one of the cheapest cars in the world.

Morris played his first four seasons in the NFL for the Washington football team after being selected in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. Over his four years playing for Washington, he earned an average salary of $555,775. So you might think he, like many professional athletes, would invest in a flashy car.

You would be wrong. 

Morris is the proud owner of 1991 Mazda that he purchased for $2 from his pastor during his junior year of college.

Yes, $2. 

Morris’ fiscal savvy isn’t limited to his car, either. During the 2015 NFL season, it was discovered that Morris rode a bike to work while he was a member of the Washington football team. 

However, Morris admitted that he is considering getting a temporary replacement car — not because his $2 car is breaking down, but because he doesn’t want it to get damaged.

He told Five Points Blue, “With this weather right now, all the rain storms for the past couple of weeks, I’m like, ‘Man, I don’t want my car to get in an accident!’ So I’m thinking of finding something else temporarily.”
