Perhaps because they got a roster spot open maybe?

They worked him out, but I don't recall them saying they didn't want him at all.
Teams need 4-5 RBs........ simple math

Yes -- that makes seven. The Cowboys clearly feel that Morris is expendable, especially so since they attempted to trade him during the last draft. He'll most likely either be traded or cut at some point later. It makes sense to consider him destined to be gone very soon. If that's not enough, Hillman has speed, can catch and also play special teams -- all things that Morris' capabilities do not include. It's definitely not overly difficult to see the handwriting on the wall. For that matter, Jahad Thomas might easily be another one to depart eventually. It could ultimately reduce the final number of RBs down to five.

Let's also include Rod Smith in the RB corps as well, since he wasn't mentioned in the previous number.

As it now stands, that makes it quite a crowded position. No doubt, reductions are destined to be made.
