Brad Holmes Wants Jahmyr Gibbs To Have Heavier Workload

Detroit Lions Vice President Brad Holmes wants running back Jahmyr Gibbs to have a heavier workload next season, he said on The Rich Eisen Show.

Quote via The Rich Eisen Show:

“I definitely would expect him to see more of a load, but David Montgomery will still be here too,” Brad Holmes said. “Dan [Campbell] and I love that 1-2 punch of him and David. But just speaking on, specifically, him being a rookie last year, even when he had some pops in that K.C. game in that opener, I was watching, I was like, ‘He’s still trying to get the feel of the game.’”

“He was playing very fast, and he actually kind of needed to slow down a little bit . . . But once he got that sweet spot, you kind of saw it in the Ravens game, which unfortunately we didn’t show up very well for that game, but that’s when you started seeing some glimpses of, ‘I think it’s coming, I think it’s coming,’ Then, obviously, that Raiders game where I believe everyone saw the breakout. . . . I think he has much more to offer in the passing game, so most likely you’ll see an increase in that as well.”

In his rookie season with the Lions, Gibbs rushed for 945 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also caught for 316 receiving yards and a single touchdown catch.

Gibbs has been sharing the snaps with Montgomery, who rushed for over 1000 yards last season. With a “1-2 punch,” as Brad Holmes described, the workload between the two should be evenly split for good production.

The Lions have been re-signing the key offensive players from their playoff run from last season. Re-signing quarterback Jared Goff, wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and offensive lineman Penei Sewell.
