Dwayne Haskins Jr. has been given a second chance in the NFL. He has signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He signed a futures contract with the team. He’ll have to prove himself to earn a roster spot this summer.
“3 in the Bible stands for restoration and eternal life,” Haskins said in a tweet. “Let’s work.”
Haskins last played for the Washington Football Team. After one-plus seasons, he was released.
Several questionable decisions led to his departure. He also partied with his girlfriend at a party on Sunday, December 20th — after a game against the Seattle Seahawks — as he went against NFL and local protocols.
Unless he’s going to change, work is something that Haskins Jr. did not seem he wanted to do. There’s been speculation of maturity issues surrounding him for quite some time.
Maybe it was because he was close to home in Washington. A lot of his family surrounded him, as he was born in New Jersey before moving to Maryland and then Ohio for college.
Where Haskins Jr. went to high school at the Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, it was approximately 30 minutes from FedExField in Landover, Maryland.
Haskins Jr. had an up and down rookie season. Then, this past season, he began as the team’s starter under first-year head coach Ron Rivera.
However, he clashed with Rivera. He made just six starts on the season before his December release.
The 23-year-old initially lost his starting job to Kyle Allen before he suffered a season-ending injury. Alex Smith then took over and it wasn’t until December he would play again.
In the six starts (7 appearances overall), Haskins Jr. went 1-5 as a starter. He has gone 148 of 241 for 1,439 passing yards.
Also, he had 12 touchdown passes and 14 interceptions.
