Dwayne Haskins, who was drafted by Washington with the 15th overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft, had an underwhelming time under center for the Football Team. In his 13 starts at quarterback in the last two seasons, he has a combined 3-10 record, completing 267 of 444 passes for 2804 yards with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Earlier this season, the former Ohio State product has been replaced by Kyle Allen and was serving as a backup for Alex Smith before he was released. In his last game, a 20-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 16, Haskins completed just 14 of 28 passes for 154 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions and was replaced by Taylor Heinicke in the fourth quarter.

Aside from his sub-par performances, Haskins was also fined $40,000 and lost his position as team captain after he violated the league’s COVID-19 protocols after being seen without a mask while attending his girlfriend’s birthday party.

While Haskins looks for a different team that will give him another opportunity, Washington turns its focus on a Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, which will could decide who wins the NFC East title.
