It's a little confusing given they don't exactly have a clear #1. Maybe it was a contract, cap issue? Looking at their depth chart for RB on ESPN and its Antonio Gibson, JD McKissic, Peyton Barber and Bryce Love.
Barber is just a backup, not really a #1. And McKissic, from memory is a complimentary pass catching back. A very good one, but not a bell cow.
Then Love and Gibson.. both drafted in 2019. Looks like of the 4 its Gibson that will likely get the first chance to be the every down back, or at least the first and 2nd down back with JD coming in on 3rd, passing downs. And Barber maybe giving Gibson breathers and maybe being the goal line back, as I think he is by far the strongest of the four.
Not sure where that leaves Love. I guess Bryce and Antonio will fight it out for #1 status. All that is to say that AP, while maybe the best running back to ever play the game doesn't really fit in this crowded back field at 35 years old. And maybe that means he is close to retiring, though he does say he wants to keep playing. Wonder what team goes after him?
Lastly it says that Washington wants to do a lot of 2 back sets.. sure. I think that's what you say when you don't have a true bell cow. I think they WILL do that UNTIL they find their #1, then change their tune. Expect it will be Gibson.
