Dwayne Haskins signs one-year deal with Steelers


Dwayne Haskins has found his new NFL home.

The former Washington Football Team quarterback has signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the team.

Shortly after, Haskins would confirm the deal on Twitter, his first post since he was released by Washington last month.

The deal comes just hours after Haskins had a free agent visit with Pittsburgh on Thursday. The Steelers were the second team to bring the 23-year-old in for a visit this offseason, as Haskins visited the Carolina Panthers earlier this month. Haskins was offered a reserve/futures contract from Carolina, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, but decided to sign with Pittsburgh instead.

Haskins, the No. 15 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, was released by Washington in late December. The second-year quarterback was cut just one week after he was photographed partying maskless and violating coronavirus protocols following the Football Team's Week 15 loss to the Seahawks.

During his two seasons with Washington, Haskins struggled. The former first-round pick was never able to take command of the starting job, as he was benched at two separate points during the 2020 season.

For his career, Haskins went 3-10 as a starter, throwing for 2,804 yards, 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
