Robinson (knee) is participating in OTAs without any apparent limitations, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Robinson missed Week 18 of his rookie season with a knee injury, but it may not have had any impact on his offseason plan given that there was never a report of surgery. The 2022 third-round pick had an eventful debut campaign, missing the first four games after he was the victim of a shooting and then averaging 17.1 carries for 66.6 yards (3.9 YPC) over the next 12 games. He caught only nine passes and scored only three times, but Robinson and Antonio Gibson could be headed for similar(ish) roles under new OC Eric Bieniemy, a former RB whose backfield at the start of OTAs consists of four holdovers from the 2022 Commanders (Robinson, Gibson, Jaret Patterson, Jonathan Williams) and rookie sixth-round pick Chris Rodriguez.

Gibson (knee, foot) is practicing Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Gibson played through a foot fracture last December but then missed the final two weeks of the season after spraining his knee. He had surgery on his foot the first week of January and seems to be back healthy for spring practices. The Commanders didn't add competition for Gibson's role this offseason, as the lone new face in the backfield at the start of OTAs is a sixth-round pick, Chris Rodriguez, who caught 20 passes in 40 games at Kentucky. Brian Robinson may get another shot as the lead runner, but Gibson is also a candidate for that role if anything goes wrong, having averaged 214.0 carries for 916 yards and 9.0 TDs over his first two pro seasons. The 2020 third-round pick then had career highs for targets, catches, receiving yards, YPR and YPT in 2022, but with new lows for carries, rush yards, rush TDs and YPC.

Peterson announced Monday he will retire unless a team offers him an opportunity to play in the 2023 season, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
Analysis: Peterson hasn't suited up for NFL action since 2021, when he appeared in three games with the Titans and one game with the Seahawks. The 38-year-old wasn't greeted with any signing opportunities last season and may not be the strongest candidate to find a role for the 2023 campaign, but it wouldn't be unheard of for a team to offer him a depth gig. Whenever Peterson does elect to retire, he will essentially be a sure candidate to enter the Hall of Fame.

Perine could see his most substantial workload of his career this season, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Perine was signed by the Broncos this offseason with the uncertainty of starter Javonte Williams' availability heading into the 2023 campaign. Though Denver appears to be optimistic that Williams could be ready for the start of training camp, it seems Perine is viewed by the Broncos coaching staff as more than just a backup plan. In discussing the veteran's signing, head coach Sean Payton indicated that "this is a guy that gave us flexibility. We signed him because we knew he was durable and reliable." Payton added, "I was taught a long time ago to stack them up at that position." Perine's potential for a higher usage rate should not come as much of a surprise, as Payton has a long history of using multiple running backs throughout his tenure as head coach of the Saints. According to Kosmider, "the Saints' second-leading rusher had more than 95 carries 11 times" in his 15 seasons with New Orleans. It appears the 27-year-old should have every opportunity to build upon the 4.4 yards per carry he averaged in his last three seasons with the Bengals, regardless of when Williams' returns to the field.

Gore was waived by the Saints on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Gore will now head to waivers, despite signing a reserve/future contract with New Orleans back in January. The 28-year-old spent most of last season on the Saints' practice squad, and he has not played in an NFL game since 2021, where he rushed for 256 yards and two touchdowns on 51 carries.
