Should the Carolina Panthers make a move for Dwayne Haskins?
As it turned out, Dwayne Haskins‘ time with the Washington Football Team came to an abrupt end following their Week 16 loss to the Carolina Panthers. It’s been a sensational fall from grace for the former first-round pick, who was released by the organization just a day removed from another dismal performance under center.
Haskins only has himself to blame. His three turnovers played a leading role in Washington failing to clinch the NFC East crown and had backup Taylor Heinicke started the contest, the result may have been different.
The Ohio State product – who was selected No. 15 overall in 2019 – is quickly in danger of becoming one of the biggest draft busts in recent memory. Haskins was famous for saying “the league done messed up” when he dropped out of the top-10. But it appears some scouts were right not to risk a high-end pick on the player.
However, all hope is not lost.
But it is essential that the player finds the right fit.
One possible option might be the Panthers, who have some questions to answer at the position themselves. Teddy Bridgewater has failed to convince skeptics that he is the man to lead Carolina long-term. Their victory at FedEx Field might put them out of the running for some top college recruits, which might force the decision-makers to think outside the box.
Acquiring Haskins would definitely fit into that category, of that there is little doubt.
