The NFL's trade deadline appeared to have a new twist, but not so fast. According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, teams have been inquiring about a possible trade for Commanders running back Antonio Gibson. Washington would prefer to keep Gibson, per Schultz, but were nonetheless listening to potential offers.
On Friday, coach Ron Rivera tossed cold water on the report saying the Commanders have "no intention" of dealing the third-year back and that he was disappointed the report surfaced in the first place.
A 1,000-yard rusher last season, Gibson has just 273 yards and two touchdowns through the first seven games of the 2022 season.
