Haskins was a star quarterback at Ohio State, where he memorably threw 50 touchdown passes as a sophomore. He was drafted by Washington in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but struggled on and off the field and was released late in 2020. He later landed with the Steelers, who at one point put him in the mix to win the starting job after Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement.
Haskins would have turned 25 early next month.
