On Wednesday, the Washington Football Team decided to issue a $40,000 fine to Haskins for his actions. More importantly, the coaching staff chose to take away his captainship.
Haskins was asked about the punishment during his media session and said he “deserved it.”
The former first round NFL Draft pick admitted that this is probably his final chance in D.C.
“I want to publicly apologize for my actions this past Sunday,” Haskins wrote on Twitter. “I spoke with Coach Rivera yesterday and took full accountability for putting the team at risk. It was irresponsible and immature of me and I accept responsibility for my action.”
Haskins added: “I also want to apologize for creating a distraction for my team during our playoff push. I will learn and grow from this and do what’s best for the team moving forward.”
Washington is set to take on Carolina on Sunday.
