Miami Sad news has reached NFL fans: Quarterback Dwayne Haskins has died in a car accident at the age of 24.
The National Football League (NFL) mourns the loss of young quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The Pittsburgh Steelers confirmed the 24-year-old’s death on Saturday via Twitter. According to an ESPN report, Haskins was hit by a car in southern Florida and succumbed to his injuries in the morning. He had trained in Florida with other quarterbacks and wide receivers.
“I’m devastated and speechless,” said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. “Dwayne was a great teammate but more than that he was a wonderful friend. It breaks my heart. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his wife Kalabrya and the entire family.”
After a record season for Ohio State University in 2019, Haskins was drafted 15th by today’s Washington Commanders. However, he did not prevail as a starter and was released in the course of his second season.
Before last season he signed a contract with the Steelers, for which he was no longer used. He should have been in contention for the starting quarterback role this offseason following the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger.
