Report: Steelers to Make RFA Tender to QB Dwayne Haskins



Dwayne Haskins

The Pittsburgh Steelers intend to place an original-round tender on restricted free agent quarterback Dwayne Haskins, according to a report by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

The move would would likely keep Haskins in Pittsburgh for at least the 2022 season. An original-round tender would pay Haskins approximately $2.5 million for 2022.

The Steelers must tender Haskins a contract to retain his rights.The tender is only a contract offer, but by issuing it, the Steelers would have right of first refusal for Haskins’ services and would revive a first-round draft pick in compensation from a team if they signed him away. 

Haskins could sign the tender and play under that one-year contract for 2022, or he and the Steelers could negotiate a different contract length or amount.

Haskins will be the second quarterback the Steelers have under contract for 2022, joining Mason Rudolph, who signed an extension in 2021.
