Dwayne Haskins is clearly no longer in the long-term plans for the Washington Football Team, so it’s high time to think where he might end up next.
The former Ohio State star was benched earlier this season in favor of Kyle Allen, and then was subsequently demoted again into the 3rd QB behind Alex Smith. A former Pittsburgh Steelers great thinks his franchise should considering making a move for Haskins.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Jerome Bettis thinks the Steelers should trade for No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft as a potential heir to Ben Roethlisberger.
“If I was in the Steeler brass I would give a long, hard look at a young quarterback that has the ability to be really special,” Bettis said during his WPXI radio show this week. He believed the former first rounder has “raw talent” that is worth a look.
John Keim of ESPN reported last week that no team has yet called Washington to inquire about a potential trade for second-year QB Dwayne Haskins.
The 23-year-old has started four games for Washington and completed 61 percent of his passes for 939 yards to go along with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He has also rushed for 30 yards.
