Report: Less than two seasons into his NFL career, ex-Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins is on the trading block
After losing his starting job and being demoted to third on the depth chart, Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins could be traded by the organization before the deadline. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported the news.
La Canfora reports that the relationship between head coach Ron Rivera, the staff and Haskins is “toxic” and that the most likely outcome of the situation is that the QB is traded. Haskins began the season as the team’s starting quarterback, but was benched four games into the year after Washington started 1-3.
From La Canfora:
Some rival executives have already begun looking at film of the former Ohio State star, anticipating him being moved in the coming weeks, with Kyle Allen — who has deep ties to this coaching staff — taking over as starter, veteran Alex Smith now the No. 2 quarterback and Haskins demoted all the way to third string.
Haskins, who was selected No. 15 overall by Washington in the 2019 NFL Draft, has made 11 career starts with the franchise, posting a 3-8 record. He’s thrown for 2,304 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions with a 59.6% completion rate.
In four games this season, Haskins threw for 939 yards and 4 touchdowns with 3 interceptions while completing passes at a 61% clip. He also had 1 rushing touchdown but was sacked 13 times while under center.
