Washington Football Team releases QB Dwayne Haskins

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30613088/washington-football-team-releases-qb-dwayne-haskins-sources-say


"This afternoon I met with Dwayne and informed him that we would be releasing him. I told him that I believe it benefits both parties that we go our separate ways. We want to thank Dwayne for his contributions these last two seasons and wish him well moving forward," Washington coach Ron Rivera said in a statement.

Haskins, whom Washington selected with the No. 15 pick in the 2019 draft, was benched in the fourth quarter Sunday after throwing two interceptions and losing a fumble in a 20-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

He started for a second straight week in place of the injured Alex Smith despite being fined $40,000 and losing his role as a captain for violating COVID-19 protocols when he was photographed last week without a mask while attending his girlfriend's birthday party.

Earlier Monday, Rivera said that Taylor Heinicke, who replaced Haskins in Sunday's game, would start in Sunday night's season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles if Smith remains sidelined with a right calf injury.

1. Not often that a team facing a win-and-in-the-playoffs, with an injured QB, cuts a backup QB...

Shows how corrosive to team dynamics his continued presence was thought to be, I guess.

2. He'll be 24 next season

I'm sure he'll mature as a person, but whether he can mature as a QB and find a fit with another team is really hard to say.

5. I hope Mr. Haskins has some sound financial people helping him because that money should set him ...

... up for life even if he never plays again.

3. At Ohio State Dwayne was the best passer I ever saw play QB there.

He could hit a gnat's butt @ 80 yards and in a wind storm too. He has the talent and I
hope he gets another chance but they call the NFL the "Not For Long" for a reason and
if he wasn't getting it done then, "Its a business."

6. He was good.

I read an article recently about how his being a first round draft pick moves OSU to the top of the recruiting list for talent. As soon as you have one 1st rounder all the talent wants to come to you.

9. Dwayne owns many Big Ten records for passing and stuff

And yes OSU is now like Alabama & Clemson they are getting the best of the best
across the board in recruiting ... it is almost unfair. Haskins was so good that he
kept Joe Burrow on the bench before he transferred to LSU.

7. I hope he saved some of that money he got up front and in his first year but I doubt it.

A large percentage of NFL players are totally broke within 5 years of the time they are done. For this young man he may be done now. Pretty sad, he was a great college QB, but his ego got in the way of his success.

11. So true on the going broke thing.

 

Personal Actions off the field has slowly come to the fore ground in selecting so called high profile Athletes.

Hopefully this young man catches on with another Club,but,doubt it will happen.

14. Not sure it is ego

Sometimes you're just not good enough for the NFL no matter how hard you work.

10. So many Ohio State QBs flop in the NFL

Playing behind huge O line at a school and conference where the run game is king. Playing much weaker opponents for most of their games, the system and environment makes average QBs look great. They are not prepared for the challenges of the NFL especially when a poor NFL team picks them high in the draft.

12. As an Ohio State fan, I was surprised he went as high as he did.

I was never overly impressed by his talent at Ohio State, though he did have some really good moments. I think he could have gone as a third or fourth round pick, it would have allowed him to develop without the pressure of starting his first year.

But then again, Danny boy does manage to mangle quarterbacks. (RG III).
