At least according to Eagles beat reporter Shamus Clancy with the Philly Voice, he is. Clancy also went on to project Rashaad Penny to be at the bottom of the volume share, which should raise some eyebrows as we get closer to the start of the regular season. Gainwell was consistently the 2-minute back last year for the Eagles, a role that D’Andre Swift projects to take over in 2023. But so far in camp, the word is that Gainwell has “undoubtedly had a stronger camp” than Rashaad Penny. It’s a situation to keep a close eye on, especially if the backfield becomes less of a 1-2 and more of a traditional committee. Gross.
