According to a report former Washington Football Team Quarterback Dwayne Haskins will meet with the Steelers Thursday.

NFL Networks’ Ian Rapoport says the first round pick also recently visited with the Carolina Panthers.

The 23-year-old was picked 15th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft by Washington.

Haskins was cut by Washington before the end of the season after being benched by the team in Week 16.

Haskins also was reportedly seen at a strip club without wearing a mask. He was fined $40,000 by Washington and stripped of his captain title before being benched and released.

"I met with Dwayne and informed him that we would be releasing him. I told him that I believe it benefits both parties that we go our separate ways," Washington Coach Ron Rivera said back in December.

In 13 games started over the past two seasons, Haskins has gone 3-10 with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions with a passer rating of 74.4.

That is a far cry from the type of numbers he put up at Ohio State.

In 2018, Haskins threw 50 touchdowns completing 373 passes out of 533 attempts for 4,831 yards.

Steelers starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who has one year remaining on his contract, has yet to make a decision on if he will retire or not. There is also the possibility the team could cut in, to save cap space.
