This Week Outlook
Free agent QB Dwayne Haskins is reportedly expected to visit with the Carolina Panthers on Monday.
After being waived by Washington following their Week 16 loss, Haskins is set to visit with head coach Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers on Monday. The Panthers had a rough season with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater at the helm and appear to be interested in a potential signing with Haskins if the visit goes well. The former Ohio State quarterback has struggled in his first two seasons in the league, getting benched a couple times and being fined for violating COVID-19 protocols which lead to his recent departure in Washington.
Dwayne Haskins, who was just cut by the Washington Football Team, went unclaimed and cleared waivers. He is now a free agent.
What a fall after being the 15th overall pick just last year. There's certainly a possibility that a team rolls the dice on him next year, but given his situation and the rumors surrounding him, his career may be over already. Haskins will hope to screw his head on straight, get in shape, and get signed before the 2021 season.
The Washington Football Team has released QB Dwayne Haskins.
Reports surfaced Monday morning that Haskins would likely be inactive in Week 17 following a very poor Week 16 performance against the Panthers. Hours later, Washington has released the former No. 15 overall pick, who will now hit waivers.
Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke will start the team's Week 17 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles over Dwayne Haskins if Alex Smith is unable to play, head coach Ron Rivera announced Monday morning.
Haskins was benched in Week 16 after completing 14 of his 28 pass attempts for 154 yards and two interceptions. It is likely that Haskins's time in Washington is done just two years after being draft in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Washington QB Dwayne Haskins was benched for Taylor Heinicke in the second half of the team's Week 16 game against the Panthers.
Haskins completed just 14-of-28 passes for 154 yards and two interceptions before being pulled. It's the end of a long week for the second-year quarterback, who was stripped of his captaincy and fined for violating COVID-19 protocols last weekend.
