Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ running back Rachaad White is set to be the team’s RB1 heading into the 2023 NFL season. The second-year running back isn’t shy about taking the reigns, or what he can do with them.
White recently appeared on Good Morning Football where he talked about expectations heading into the 2023 season.
“My expectation is really just do my job,” he said (from Good Morning Football via CBS Sports). “Be the guy [general manager] Jason Licht wants me to be, but really just be myself. Go out there, have fun, hang loose. Obviously, the Bucs haven’t had a 1,000-yard rusher in about eight years or so. So, I want to, of course, eclipse that.”
Not only does White know what his expectations are, he’s also aware of team history. If White is able to eclipse the1,000 mark, he will be the first Buccaneers’ running back to do so since Doug Martin in 2015.
White’s rookie season was solid but not overwhelming. As a rookie he posted 481 yards rushing and 290 receiving with three total touchdowns. Look for White to dramatically improve on these numbers on 2023.
