Washington Redskins player to get his 1991 626 restored by Mazda

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris loves his 1991 Mazda 626. And luckily for him, the automaker offered to restore it like new.

Affectionately called “Bentley” by Morris, the old Japanese sedan has ran into its fair share of troubles over the years, yet their bond remains strong.

Mazda representatives contacted his agent and said they could have the 626 refurbished and fitted with modern extras like a navigation system and CD player, but “nothing too lavish,” Morris apparently said.

The restoration process will take 6-8 weeks, and the young star hopes the car can run for about 20 more years.

Who ever said that football players don't have a soft side?
