Peter King sees little trade market for Dwayne Haskins at deadline

After a very public demotion to third string earlier this season, Dwayne Haskins' role with the Washington Football Team moving forward remains very much in doubt. Many have speculated the team will try to move him at the upcoming trade deadline, but NBC Sports' Peter King thinks that may be easier said than done.

“Who would trade anything of great value for Dwayne Haskins?” King told NBC Sports Washington. “He’s worth more to Washington right now than he is to almost anybody else. There could be a general manager out there who says, ‘You know, I really like Dwayne Haskins in the draft from 2019,’ but everything I heard on draft night when he went 15th overall to Washington, everything I heard is, ‘Whoa, boy that’s a risk by Daniel Snyder.’”

Haskins started the first four games for Washington this season, throwing four touchdowns and three interceptions before being replaced by Kyle Allen and Alex Smith in Week 5.

The 15th overall pick in 2019, Haskins ended last season with a 131.3 passer rating in his last two starts. So there have been flashes, and while it may not be a great return on investment, King does see a way Washington could get a deal done by the deadline on November 3rd.

“I just don’t think there’s any value right now in Dwayne Haskins, unless it's like a Bill Belichick kind of a counter-culture personnel guy who says, ‘You know what? I really like Dwayne Haskins. I’ll give them a 4 for Dwayne Haskins,’” King said.

“I don’t think anybody out there is lusting after Dwayne Haskins after he gets yanked and then demoted to No. 3.”
