Report: Steelers to Meet with Free Agent QB Dwayne Haskins
The Steelers are expected to meet with former Washington Football Team and Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins on Thursday, according to a report by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Haskins, who was released by Washington on Dec. 28 after a disappointing run as a starter following his selection in the first round out of Ohio State in 2019. He has also visited with the Carolina Panthers since his release.
In 16 games with Washington, Haskins threw 444 times, completing 267 for 2804 yards, a 60.1% completion percentage. He threw for 12 touchdowns compared to 14 interceptions and recorded a 74.4 passer rating. He was also sacked 49 times.
The interview with Haskins is the first outward sign that the Steelers may attempt to address their future at the quarterback position this offseason. Starter Ben Roethlisberger reportedly intends to return for the final season of his contract, but the 38-year-old is set to count for $41 million toward the Steelers’ 2021 salary cap.
