Kapri Bibbs’ dream of playing for the Redskins became reality – The Denver Post

Three weeks before the Washington Redskins worked out running back Kapri Bibbs, he had a dream about the team.

Vividly remembering the dream’s inclusion of the Redskins’ “mustard-color” attire, Bibbs, who couldn’t stop smiling, recounted the memory in his locker after Washington’s 20-15 win Sunday over the Arizona Cardinals at FedEx Field.

Bibbs, who was signed to the Redskins’ practice squad in November and promoted to the active roster Tuesday, said after waking from his dream, he called up one of his friends to tell him about the odd occurrence. He didn’t know what the Redskins-specific dream meant — whether it was an omen, a sign or just a meaningless occurrence — but three weeks later, Bibbs got a call from Washington inviting him to a workout.

“I had to call (my friend) back up and say like, ‘Man, guess what, like the Redskins just called me for a workout,’ ” Bibbs said. “He was like, ‘You got to kill it, you got to get the job’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, I know, I want it bad.’ ”

But when the team didn’t immediately sign him after the workout, the 5-foot-11, 203-pound running back thought his dream might have been a fluke after all. He thought that since he wanted it so bad, he had inadvertently convinced himself the dream was a sign. But two weeks later Bibbs heard from the Redskins, and they wanted to sign him.

On Sunday, the 24-year-old took the field for his first game in a Redskins uniform — wearing mustard-colored pants. He caught two passes on a key drive in the second quarter, which set up his 36-yard touchdown catch off a fake-reverse screen pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins to give the Redskins a 14-3 lead with 13:39 left in the first half. It was Bibbs’s second career touchdown in his three-year NFL career.

Bibbs finished Sunday’s game with one touchdown, four catches for 47 yards and two rushes for six yards.

“It means everything to me,” Bibbs said of the touchdown. “… I’m trying to stop smiling, but at the same time, I’ve been through a lot and this is just a blessing and I know God made everything happen for a reason.”

Bibbs previously spent time with the Denver Broncos, where he recorded his first touchdown — a 69-yard catch off a screen pass — last year. With Denver last season, he recorded 29 carries for 129 yards.
