Dwayne Haskins goes unclaimed on waivers, becomes NFL free agent


#Former #Ohio #State quarterback #Dwayne #Haskins has cleared waivers and will become a free agent.

The former #Heisman finalist was released by the #Washington #Football #Team on #Monday because of some off the field issues in combination with subpar performances this season, one in which he was originally handed the starting job. The fact that #Washington took the financial risk says all you need to know about what the team thought of his future.

#Teams had until 4:00 p.m. #Tuesday to claim #Haskins. #Had a team done so, it would have been on the hook for the remaining money left on his rookie contract, which stands at about $4.26 million. #However, with no claim by another team, #Washington now stands to take an over $8 million hit in cap space for the former first-round pick.

#Haskins now hits the free-agent market, and it will be interesting to see if any team is willing to take a chance on him based on the game film and what we’ve seen from him outside of the field of play.

#We, of course, wish him well and know the type of person #Hasksin is based on his time at #Ohio #State. #Hopefully, he gets another shot and learns from anything but a model start to his NFL career in our nation’s capital.
