Dwayne Haskins | Steelers QB

The Steelers are expected to sign Dwayne Haskins, according to multiple reports.

Haskins’ visit with the team is apparently going well, and (barring any last-minute issues or a poor visit with the coaches) the 2019 first-round pick will land with one of the league’s top franchises after things did not work out in Washington. This signing is a bit of a surprise considering the Steelers have former third-round pick Mason Rudolph in the building behind Ben Roethlisberger, but the team must have liked Haskins coming out of Ohio State. Haskins will look to learn behind Roethlisberger and could have a shot to win the starting job whenever Roethlisberger retires.

Washington has released Dwayne Haskins, according to NFL Network.

Haskins was the No. 15 overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, but numerous issues with immaturity combined with sub-par on-field performance already has the franchise moving on. Ron Rivera obviously wasn’t around when the team selected Haskins, so that likely made the decision even easier at this point. It will be interesting to see if anyone claims Haskins, but he has a lot of growing up to do if he’s going to get his career on the tracks. In 16 appearances with Washington, Haskins threw for 2,804 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions—going 3-10 as the starter.

Washington has benched Dwayne Haskins.

Taylor Heinicke is entering the game for Washington down two touchdowns to the Panthers in the fourth quarter. Haskins simply did not play well at all today in a game where he really needed to following a major off-field mishap during the week. Before leaving, Haskins was 14/28 for 154 yards and two interception. We'll see what happens, but Haskins may need a fresh start to jumpstart his career.

Washington is benching Dwayne Haskins.

Kyle Allen, who has a relationship with Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner from their time together in Carolina, will now start for Washington. In four games, Haskins threw for 939 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions. Perhaps Haskins will get back in the starting lineup at some point this season, but for now it looks like the former No. 15 overall pick will not be the long-term answer in Washington.

Washington has officially named Dwayne Haskins their starting quarterback.

This isn't a surprise, but Alex Smith returning to the field at least made it a question for a team that expects to compete immediately under Ron Rivera. Although we saw Haskins show flashes down the stretch as a rookie last season, he won't be a highly recommended fantasy option leading an offense that lacks established playmakers behind Terry McLaurin.

Dwayne Haskins (ankle) is done for the season.

Haskins left Week 16 after a very strong start (12-of-15 for 133 yards and two touchdowns), but fortunately, the injury isn't overly serious, as the rookie apparently wanted to return to the game. Still, his year is now over, and the No. 15 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft will finish his first season by completing 58.6% of his passes for 1,365 yards, seven touchdowns, and seven interceptions in nine games (seven starts). The Redskins should be happy with what they saw down the stretch in particular, and Haskins—the rookie passer that likely needed the most development entering the league—showed enough flashes to feel good about as the franchise guy in 2020 and beyond. Depending on the upgrades added around him and who the next head coach is for Washington, Haskins may be an upside QB2 pick in fantasy drafts over the summer.

Dwayne Haskins (ankle) has been downgraded to doubtful.

The Redskins are very unlikely to rush their young first-round quarterback back from his ankle injury, and it would be a major surprise if he's inserted back into today's game. Before leaving, Haskins was 12/15 for 133 yards and two touchdowns in another promising late-season outing. Hopefully he's able to get back into the lineup for Week 17.

Dwayne Haskins carted to locker room with apparent leg injury.

Haskins was rolled up on back in the pocket, and he was obviously frustrated and/or upset. Hopefully this isn't as bad as it looks like it might be, but we'll update you when more information is available on the rookie quarterback's status.

The Redskins have named Dwayne Haskins their starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.

Interim head coach Bill Callahan announced the news when talking to the media, so the No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft will remain under center for the final seven games of the season as he looks to build momentum into next year. Washington will remain a run-first team centered around Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice, but perhaps they are going to open things up a bit for Haskins in good matchups—including this weekend against the Jets. That said, the Redskins will remain one of the offenses to attack for those streaming D/ST options.

Dwayne Haskins will start for the Redskins in Week 9.

With Case Keenum still in concussion protocol, Haskins is drawing his first career NFL start after taking the first-team reps in practice during the week. The rookie has a tough task facing the Bills in Buffalo, but it'll be interesting to watch the Ohio State product in his first career start. Haskins is not a recommended fantasy pickup in a run-heavy offense.

The Redskins have inserted Dwayne Haskins at quarterback.

Down 14-0 to the Giants, Washington has benched veteran starter Case Keenum in favor of the first-round rookie. We'll see if the Ohio State product can make a big instant-impact on the Redskins offense.

The Redskins have selected Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins with the No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Haskins' wait ends with Washington, which is good news for Redskins owner Daniel Snyder if reports are to be believed that he wanted to trade up into the top five to select the Ohio State quarterback that went to school with his son in the Maryland area. Haskins is the third quarterback selected in this year's class (behind Kyler Murray—first overall to the Cardinals; and Daniel Jones—sixth overall to the Giants), but he had a case for being the draft's top signal-caller given his ability as a classic, drop-back passer that apparently spends a lot of time on the whiteboard; one knock is that he was just a one-year starter for the Buckeyes. You can read our full scouting report on Haskins in the link below, but he obviously has the talent to immediately start Week 1 against the Eagles as a rookie. He'll have to beat out Case Keenum and Colt McCoy for the starting job.
