This is a touching move by Pittsburgh, as it the last team he played for before his passing. Haskins played at Ohio State from 2016-2018, and played alongside Terry McLaurin. McLaurin was his teammate at Washington before he got picked up the Steelers following his release.
While he didn’t have any stats from his time in Pittsburgh, Haskins had 2,804 yards passing and 12 touchdown passes with Washington.
