Commanders QB Jayden Daniels 'First Loss Will Come From Me!' Says Bucs RB

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers boasted one of the worst rushing games in the league last season and hope a new offense and additions to the offensive line will change things. But Bucs running back Rachaad White is feeling as competitive as ever.

Tampa Bay's first game of the season will come at home against the Washington Commanders. Washington has also undergone quite a few changes with a new ownership group, new coaching staff and new players that hope to flip the script on the Commanders' recent poor play.

One of the new additions for the Commanders is quarterback Jayden Daniels, selected with the second overall pick in April's NFL Draft, and White wants to be the one to offer him his first loss as a pro.

'It's crazy, our first game, I tell 'em we got to put belt-to-ass, but that's just how it goes, you know what I'm saying," White said when asked about the upcoming matchup. "It's just good competition. It's great competition... it's cool though. His first loss will come from me."

Daniels, 23, was the 2023 Heisman Trophy winner and led LSU to a 10-3 record and he's been pegged as the starter for the Commanders by new head coach Dan Quinn - one of several rookies expected to start in their first season.

But there is a deeper connection for White and Daniels. The two were teammates at Arizona State for two seasons from 2020 through 2021. Daniels eventually transferred to LSU for his final two seasons of eligibility - eventually becoming the Heisman winner and second overall pick.

The Bucs are coming off a 9-8 season and a third straight division title and fourth playoff appearance in a row. The Commanders haven't been as good. Washington was 4-13 last year and has made the postseason just five times with only one win since 1999. The last Washington playoff appearance was a Wild Card loss to Tom Brady and the Bucs in 2020 en route to Tampa Bay's last Super Bowl.

A Week 1 win for either White or Daniels won't just offer bragging rights for the player, it'll mean a good start to a season that means a ton for both teams.
