Dwayne Haskins signs with Steelers


The Steelers have officially signed former Washington Football Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins after his visit in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Haskins, along with three others, signed Reserve/Future contracts (meaning they won't count against the 53-man roster).

Haskins was the 15th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft and started in 13 games over two seasons with Washington, completing 267 out of 444 pass attempts (60.1 percent) for 2,804 yards and 12 touchdowns. He went 3-10 and threw 14 interceptions in that stretch.

Haskins has also had trouble off the field.

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.

In 22 games at Ohio State, Haskins threw for 5,408 yards and 54 touchdowns.

Haskins will at least get a chance to prove he still belongs in the NFL when he tries to make Pittsburgh's 53-man roster.

The Steelers also signed defensive back Stephen Denmark along with tight ends Charles Jones and Dax Raymond.

Denmark was the taken by the Chicago Bears in the 7th fround of the 2019 draft and was on the practice squad with the Bears through Week 5 of this past season.

Jones, who signed to the Steelers practice squad in November, had previously spent time on Jacksonville and Buffalo’s practice squad. At Tulane, he caught 40 passes for 268 yards and five touchdowns.

Raymond signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Utah State in 2019. He signed with the Steelers in July last year participating in trading camp before he was waived/injured. He then signed to the Packers practice squad in November.
