Panthers among teams with interest in ex-Washington QB Dwayne Haskins


#Dwayne #Haskins went unclaimed off waivers but might not have trouble landing a roster spot in 2021.

NFL #Network #Insider #Ian #Rapoport reported #Wednesday that the former #Washington first-round pick is receiving interest from several teams, including the #Carolina #Panthers, per a source informed of the situation.

#Rapoport added that #Haskins is unlikely to sign before the end of the season, but the #Panthers and others remain intrigued by the 23-year-old QB.

#Haskins’ swift demise in #Washington after just 13 starts represented both a faulty organization that brought him in the building, a new coach with no connection who never appeared sold on the QB, #Haskins’ poor play, and recent off-field issues.

#Other organizations likely see the big-armed QB as a talent who could grow into an NFL starter under the right circumstances.

The #Panthers are an interesting team to take an interest in #Haskins. #Matt #Rhule’s offense is QB-friendly, and the motivator could be the type of coach to coax the best from #Haskins. #Teddy #Bridgewater’s contract keeps him in town at least one more year, but there is room for a younger signal-caller to grow alongside the veteran. P.J. #Walker and #Will #Grier are currently the #Panthers’ backups, but it seems likely #Rhule would want to import another option with higher long-term upside.

#After #Sunday’s victory pushed #Carolina down the draft board, if there aren’t any highly prized rookie QBs who might fall to the #Panthers, #Rhule could view #Haskins as a worthy project that could pay off down the road.

#Teams weren’t interested in taking on the final guaranteed years of #Haskins’ rookie contract. #Washington is on the hook for that. #But #Haskins still has the talent to be an NFL QB if he improves going through his reads and learns how to better maneuver around pressure. #For the right price, there could be several teams looking to add the young QB as a project option with big upside in 2021.
