  Steelers | Dwayne Haskins receives praise    Tue Jun 1, 06:22 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins has looked great early in organized team activities, according to QB Ben Roethlisberger Tuesday, June 1. Roethlisberger said Haskins' throwing mechanics 'are some of the prettiest I've seen.'

Footballguys view: There was a lot to like about Haskins when he came out of Ohio State in 2019. He's got a rocket arm, and Haskins played with poise - attacking a defense deep and making high/low reads with ease. Things fell apart for him with Washington, and now he's getting a second chance with the Steelers. If he puts it all together, perhaps Haskins could be an option for the Steelers after Ben Roethlisberger is done. At this time, Pittsburgh seems to be counting on Mason Rudolph as a future starter and that's not a great plan. It's not like Haskins is a guarantee, but his upside is higher if he finally starts playing up to his potential.

  Steelers | Dwayne Haskins signs with PIT    Thu Jan 21, 02:07 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Dwayne Haskins (Washington Football Team) on Thursday, Jan. 21, agreed to a one-year contract offer from the Pittsburgh Steelers, per a source.

Footballguys view: The Steelers take a chance on the former first-round pick here. Haskins was Washington's top pick in the 2019 NFL draft, but he failed to impress while starting 13 games over two seasons. He'll try to get his career back on track but Haskins is no lock for the 53-man roster. The Steelers need to find some young quarterback to groom behind Ben Roethlisberger and Haskins could be that guy.

  Panthers | Dwayne Haskins to visit Carolina    Sat Jan 9, 08:08 AM

Updating previous reports, free-agent QB Dwayne Haskins (Washington) is scheduled to visit the Carolina Panthers Monday, Jan. 11, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: The Panthers seem like a good fit for Haskins. They have Teddy Bridgewater as their clear-cut starter but Haskins could compete as a reserve and get his career back on track. Haskins is taking his time to find a new home and has a few teams interested in making him a reclamation project.

  NFL | Dwayne Haskins unlikely to sign now    Wed Dec 30, 01:10 PM

Free-agent QB Dwayne Haskins (Washington) is receiving interest from several teams but is not expected to sign with a team before the end of the 2020 season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Haskins is going to wait just to see if more interest can be drummed up. The 2018 first-round pick fell out of favor with the new staff in Washington. On the field he struggled with consistency and off the field, well...let's just say that part didn't make the team happy either. Any team that adds Haskins will do so with the idea that he's a reclamation project. It's doubtful that some team does anything more than let him compete for a spot on the depth chart in 2021.

  Panthers | Dwayne Haskins drawing CAR interest    Wed Dec 30, 10:09 AM

Free-agent QB Dwayne Haskins (Football Team) is drawing interest from the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: It's funny that the Panthers are the only team we've heard by name. There are reportedly other teams but nobody is yet named other than the Panthers. They'll be looking for an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater this offseason. Haskins is not that, but instead he's a reclamation project for any team that adds him.

  Football Team | Dwayne Haskins waived    Mon Dec 28, 12:14 PM

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins was waived Monday, Dec. 28.

Footballguys view: Things change quickly around here. Haskins was a first-round pick for Washington in the 2019 NFL draft but rarely flashed the type of talent you'd expect from a player drafted in the opening round. He finishes his career in Washington with 12 passing touchdowns, 14 interceptions and 2,804 yards passing over two seasons (16 games total).

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins completed 14-of-28 passes for 154 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers before being benched midway through the fourth quarter in favor of QB Taylor Heinicke.

Footballguys view: It would be a shock if Haskins was with Washington next year. The only question is whether a team will give a late round pick for him in the offseason.

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins completed 38-of-55 passes for 295 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks and he also rushed for 28 yards.

Footballguys view: Haskins went high volume and posted some numbers based on volume but didn't really instill any more confidence than we had in him coming into the game. Washington will likely push for Alex Smith to start against Carolina next week in a bid to stay in the lead in the division.

  Football Team | Dwayne Haskins fined    Sat Oct 24, 08:44 AM

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins was fined $4,833 by the National Football League for violating the team's COVID-19 protocols. According to a source, he made a reservation for a family friend at the club's hotel, which is strictly prohibited.

Footballguys view: This fine is unlikely to heal any sort of fractures the relationship Haskins may now have with the organization. Washington is set to dress two quarterbacks (Kyle Allen, Alex Smith) and that means Haskins will likely be a healthy scratch again in Week 7. There's a chance he could be dealt before the trade deadline.

Footballguys view: Haskins has not requested a trade per reports but there is speculation that the team could be shopping the 2019 first-round pick. They have Kyle Allen as their starter when healthy and veteran Alex Smith as a backup. Haskins may not be able to see the field again this year for Washington.

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins could be moved before the trade deadline, according to source.

  Football Team | Dwayne Haskins struggled to grasp offense    Thu Oct 8, 02:46 AM

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins had trouble learning the new offense, according to MMQB's Albert Breer, which was a big reason the team decided to bench him.

Footballguys view: Haskins was not drafted by this regime, so the 2019 first-round pick cannot be considered their quarterback of the future. He'll have to prove himself in practice and get an opportunity later in the year. Kyle Allen takes over as the team's starter this week, although Washington will examine that decision on a weekly basis.

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins went 32-for-45 for 314 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4. He also rushed for three yards and one touchdown on three carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Did Haskins play well enough to keep his job? He didn't have any huge mistakes and he wasn't really the reason Washington lost, but he wasn't going to be able to help them win either. The Rams defense next week is no pushover so expect Haskins to get further out on the plank if he didn't walk to the end this week.

  Football Team | Dwayne Haskins named starting QB    Wed Sep 2, 02:02 PM

Washington Football Team QB Dwayne Haskins will be the team's starting quarterback this season, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: The team has to see what Haskins has as a starter. Even though the last regime drafted him in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft, Haskins could be the franchise quarterback for Rivera and company. We'll see what he can do as the starter, but he's not guaranteed the job for the entire season. If he struggles, the team could turn to Alex Smith or Kyle Allen. Haskins is mostly a low-end QB2 or QB3 for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

  Football Team | Dwayne Haskins showing well    Thu Aug 27, 08:01 PM

Washington Football Team Dwayne Haskins has created a great deal of space between himself and Kyle Allen to begin the season as the starting quarterback, in the opinion of Washington Wire's Zachary Neel. Haskins has reportedly looked much improved in camp and displayed a solid grasp of the new offense.

Footballguys view: Haskins should be better than last year, and while that probably only amounts to an emergency play in 1QB leagues and QB3 in superflex/2QB leagues, he should have more volume this year and can support at least two viable wide receivers and maybe Logan Thomas's fantasy value too.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins still shedding weight    Fri Jun 12, 09:35 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins said he is down to 218 pounds after weighing 237 pounds at the start of last season. 'I'll be more dynamic,' he said.

Footballguys view: Haskins flashed as a rookie last year but he needs to be more consistent in 2020. He's going to compete with Kyle Allen for the starting job and we believe he should win. We'll see if reduced weight can help his athleticism and help Haskins flash those tools that made him a first-round pick last year.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins recently worked out with WR Steven Sims.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins took a huge step forward late    Sun May 31, 04:13 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins took a combined three sacks and went 31-of-43 (72 percent) as a passer for 394 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions over his final two starts of 2019. In his first seven appearances as a pro (five starts), he was sacked an average of 3.7 times and went 88-for-160 (55 percent) as a passer for 971 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Footballguys view: There is no doubt that Haskins flashed ability as a rookie...he just didn't get much time to prove himself. He'll compete in training camp with Kyle Allen for the starting job. The last coaching regime brought in Haskins as a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He'll have to prove himself to new head coach Ron Rivera, and if he plays like he did late last year then that shouldn't be a problem.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins finished strong    Fri May 29, 01:50 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins ranked 10th among quarterbacks in terms of Pro Football Focus passing grade over Weeks 9-17 of the 2019 season.

Footballguys view: Haskins did flash at times during his rookie season. He appeared in nine games and mostly struggled due to a lack of talent around him. Haskins has a strong arm and the ability to extend plays, making him an interesting developmental prospect. He will compete with Kyle Allen for the starting job in training camp.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins impressing his OC    Wed May 27, 09:54 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins has spent the last few months throwing with WRs Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon and is 'doing a great job' so far this offseason, according to offensive coordinator Scott Turner.'We're putting a lot of work in, obviously abiding by the rules that the NFL has set forth - four days a week, two hours a day. We're kind of throwing a lot at them. In the beginning of every meeting, we do some quizzes. Just test their retention. When we're talking to him, he is speaking the language. It's pretty easy to tell if they get it or not. Dwayne's doing a great job. You can tell he's putting the work in away from the meeting time, and he's working at it and doing as much as he can. ... The time he's putting in with the receivers, Terry and Kelvin, they all have been throwing together for some time now. That's all positive. Obviously as a coach and with me, coming in new and putting in this new offense I'd love to have more time with him, but it is what it is. I think that we're doing a great job with making the most of the situation,' Turner told the writers during a video call Wednesday, May 27.

Footballguys view: Haskins was the team's 2019 first-round pick but that was the last coaching regime. We'll see if Ron Rivera likes him more than Kyle Allen in training camp. Haskins has tools and did flash just a bit last year as a rookie in limited action.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins drops weight    Fri May 15, 07:46 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins said he has dropped 11 pounds this offseason.

Footballguys view: Haskins may feel the weight loss will make him quicker on the move. He was the team's first-round pick in 2019 and he did flash a bit in limited playing time as a rookie. However, this new staff led by head coach Ron Rivera has no ties to Haskins and he will have to compete for the starting job with Kyle Allen in training camp.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will open training camp as the No. 1 quarterback but will have to compete for the job during the preseason, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Kyle Allen was added for competition and he will push Haskins for the starting job. Haskins flashed as a rookie in 2019 but he was not picked by the current staff so he could have a short hook as the starter -- if he even wins the starting job in camp.

  Redskins | Dwayne Haskins will begin as QB1    Sat Feb 8, 04:00 PM

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will begin the era of head coach Ron Rivera as the team's No. 1 quarterback, according to senior vice president of player development Doug Williams Friday, Feb. 7. 'The new staff knows that Dwayne Haskins is the starting quarterback here,' Williams said. 'The only thing that can happen is for Dwayne to give it back to them. It's up to him to learn the playbook, wear the coaches out. He's got to stay at the facility until they run him out of the building. ...'Dwayne has a long way to go. But like I told him, he was doing what we expected him to do. He was ascending. Hopefully the way he goes now, he keeps going up. All eyes are going to be on him. At the same time you've got a new coaching staff and they're not married to him.'

Footballguys view: Rivera didn't go on and on about Haskins at his introductory press conference earlier this year. That being said, Haskins is their guy and the quarterback they will try to build around. He did show some flashes last year as a rookie under the old coaching staff, but Haskins will have to show growth and improvement even more this year or else Rivera will have cache to find himself another quarterback.
