Antonio Gibson Potential Extension
At the beginning of the season, Gibson was the Commanders’ starting running back but lost the gig to rookie Brian Robinson. He then spent some time as a kick returner but reclaimed the RB1 spot after Robinson was shot during an attempted carjacking. When Robinson returned in Week 5, Gibson’s touches were cut back, and his role was decreased.
He ended the 2022 campaign on injured reserve, nursing both an ankle injury and a knee sprain. He finished with 546 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns, 353 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in the air. He will now use the offseason to get healthy and explore a potential contract extension.
If the Commanders release quarterback Carson Wentz, it will free up approximately $26,200,000 in cap space. That brings the team’s total available cap space to around $32,800,000. They’ll have the financial room to keep Gibson on the roster, but is he a good fit moving forward? He would need to be comfortable in a more secondary role, taking a backseat to Robinson as long as both are healthy.
