Washington Redskins running back Kapri Bibbs played three seasons with the Denver Broncos. He is ready to have a big game Sunday against his former team.
Bibbs’ most productive season was in 2016 when he rushed for 129 yards on 29 carries and also caught 2 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. However, in April the Broncos traded Bibbs to the San Francisco 49ers during the 2017 NFL Draft along with a fifth-round pick, and received a 2018 fourth-round pick.
Bibbs was waived by the before the start of the season, and was signed to Washington’s practice squad in late November.
“I want to show them they made a huge mistake,” Bibbs said, via ESPN’s John Keim.
That quote is simply Bibbs being a competitor, which is fine. Shortly after finding out he was traded, he was complimentary of the Broncos for helping him gain a greater understanding of the game of football.
That better understanding showed itself during Bibbs’ first game of the 2017 season. Injury forced him into action Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals, and he caught 4 passes for 41 yards and a touchdown.
His former teammates are surely happy that he is playing well, but they will also be keeping a close eye on him coming out of the backfield to catch passes.
