Sure it could.

But I think the film needs someone who can tell the audience the history of Winter Soldier through first-hand experience. I think that is the role Redford will play, an older, high-ranking agent who had dealings with Winter Soldier throughout the last 70 years who can tell Cap what's up. That character will allow the audience to play catch-up and flesh out what happened with the Winter Soldier while we weren't looking. No one knows Winter Soldier is Bucky, that's for Cap to figure out.
