Terry McLaurin: Dwayne Haskins ready to prove himself

Terry McLaurin has spent more time with Dwayne Haskins than most players and the Washington wideout sees good things in the quarterback’s future.

McLaurin and Haskins played together at Ohio State and they have been working out together in Virginia as the team’s offseason program goes on remotely. Those workouts have given McLaurin a close view of Haskins’ improved physique and left him with high expectations for what’s coming for his teammate.

“Dwayne’s looked great,” McLaurin said, via the team’s website. “He looks really cut up, he’s slimmed down. He’s having fun again I feel like. A lot was thrown at him his first year, and I’m not making any excuses for him at all, but I feel like his focus is great right now physically, mentally. . . . He’s ready to prove himself right and just ready to be the leader and the quarterback that this franchise needs and deserves.”

Haskins has drawn positive reviews from the new coaching staff as well and translating those words into production would be a big step forward for his second NFL season.

  1. We’ll see. Glad he’s looking good, but what matters is how he performs. HAIL.

  2. I’ve never heard anyone say Tom Brady looked good physically. These are QB’s we’re talking about. I’d rather hear about a young QB spending 12 hours a day in the film room.

  3. A step in the right direction for the Redskins. The Redskins need some positivity and the emergence of a young quarterback would give the Redskins franchise hope that they haven’t had for a long time. Rookie years for quarterbacks have not been very good with very few exceptions. Kyler Murray was ok last year; Mahomes did not play in his rookie year; Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, Daniel Jones, Mason Rudolph, Trubisky did not exactly set the league on fire in their first years. The league would be better off with a resurgence of one of the great franchises–the Washington Redskins.
