NFC Notes: Commanders, Eagles, A.J. Brown, Giants

Commanders OC Scott Turner expects third-round RB Brian Robinson, Jr. to provide a good 1-2 punch with starting RB Antonio Gibson. “He brings a little bit of an edge and physicality. He sat behind some really good players at Alabama, so there’s not as much wear on him as a normal back that has played for 4 years. Last year he got his opportunity and made the most of it,” he said via “Physical runner, he makes guys tackle him. He’s elusive, can run away from you, but he has that edge and that ball carrier mentality where he wants the ball. I think he’s going to provide some good competition as well.

Robinson is a very serious guy too, so that will be good to add.”
