New Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins Gets Blessing From Joe Theismann to Wear #7

First-round draft pick quarterback Dwayne Haskins says he has been given the blessing from Washington legend Joe Theismann to wear his old number seven jersey number with the team.

Washington does not officially retire jersey numbers but hasn’t issued number seven to a player since Theismann retired in 1986.

Theismann said yesterday he had a phone call with Haskins and appreciated the way he respectfully asked to use the number.

Washington also drafted former Buckeye wide receiver Terry McLaurin who wore number 83 at OSU, but that jersey is currently taken by Brian Quick.

    Eight UDFA’s and some good ones I think.
    I actually mocked one a couple times.

    DE/DT RYAN BEE 6’7″ 280
    I think he makes the squad and while CALEB BRANTLEY replaces Stacy McGee in the rotation, BEE will become the sixth interior member and used sparingly as the season progresses.

    IDL
    starters
    DE J.ALLEN
    NT D. PAYNE
    DE M. IOANNIDIS
    back-ups
    DE C. BRANTLEY
    NT T. SETTLE
    DE R. BEE

    FS BOSTON…………………………….SS COLLINS
    CB DUNBAR……………………………..CB NORMAN
    ILB R. FOSTER……………………….ILB M.FOSTER
    OLB SWEAT DE ALLEN NT PAYNE DE IOANNIDIS OLB KERRIGAN

    That’s a formidable defense right there.

    QB KEENUM
    RB PETERSON
    TE REED
    WR DOCTSON
    WR McLAURIN
    WR QUINN
    LT WILLIAMS
    LG MARTIN
    C ROULLIER
    RG SCHERFF
    RT MOSES

    Not as imposing, but promising
