Dwayne Haskins goes unclaimed on waivers, but several teams have reportedly expressed interest

#Former #Washington #Football #Team quarterback #Dwayne #Haskins is officially a free agent. #On #Tuesday afternoon, ESPN’s #Adam #Schefter reported that the former first-round pick went unclaimed on waivers, and is now free to sign with any interested team. #According to #Schefter, there are teams that have already expressed some interest.

#It’s not much of a surprise that #Haskins went unclaimed on waivers, as any team that claimed him would have been on the hook for $68,000 in #Week 17 and approximately $4.3 million fully guaranteed over the remainder of his contract, for ESPN’s #Dan #Graziano. #Now that he is officially a free agent, teams are free to make a move.

#On #Monday, head coach #Ron #Rivera made the decision to release #Haskins after what was a dramatic week. #During #Washington’s #Week 16 loss against the #Carolina #Panthers, #Haskins threw for just 154 yards and two interceptions before being benched for #Taylor #Heinicke in the second half. #He was given another chance to start in relief of the injured #Alex #Smith even though he was both fined and stripped of his title as captain after violating COVID-19 protocols for the second time this season.

#Haskins finishes his career in #Washington with a 3-10 record as a starter. #He completed 60.1 percent of his passes for 2,804 yards, 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. #Haskins says he feels like he has the skills necessary to be a starting quarterback in the NFL, but he needs someone to once again take a chance on him. #He understands that there have been questions about how he handles himself off the field or about his work ethic, but the former #Ohio #State star says that he’s dedicated to the game of football and doing everything necessary to prove his worth to his next team.

“I definitely feel like I have the skills to play quarterback at a high level in the NFL, and that’s just something I need someone to believe in me and give me the opportunity and I have to earn that, I have to work for that,” #Haskins told WUSA9’s #Darren #Haynes. “#By no means will it be easy, and I’m definitely willing to put the work in to earn that whether that’s right away or in the future. (I) just love playing football, I love the game and I’ve dedicated my life to this and even if there was a question about it before, I will end those questions later.”

CBS #Sports NFL writer #Jeff #Kerr identified four prospective landing spots that would make sense for #Haskins. #Check out his piece here.
