Washington Makes Shocking Move in Waiving Second-Year QB Haskins

Washington took former Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

One year later – the Haskins Era is over.

Monday the Football Team announced that they are waiving Haskins, ending a rough two seasons in which he went just 3-10 as a starter.

The move to waive Haskins comes just hours after coach Ron Rivera announced that if starting quarterback Alex Smith is not able to play Sunday against the Eagles, Haskins would not be the starter and the team would go with Taylor Heinicke at quarterback.

Haskins struggled under center Sunday, going just 14-for-28 for 154 with two interceptions and he was sacked twice in a 20-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Overall this season the QB had a rating of 30.7 in throwing 1439 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Washington released a statement regarding the Monday roster move.

It wasn’t just on the field that saw Haskins struggle, as pictures came out of the quarterback at a strip club not wearing a mask.

The quarterback released a statement about the incident after a discussion with Rivera. “It was irresponsible and immature and I accept responsibility for my action.” He also issued an apology to his teammates for “creating a distraction during our playoff push,” Haskins said.

Heinicke came into Sunday’s loss against the Panthers and led Washington to their only offensive touchdown during the loss.

    He was too young,one season at Ohio State, came to DC, became hero to local hanger ons, believed the press regarding his ability, like all Washington high draft QBs he was spoiled before first snap, now take your purse and get out.
