Dwayne Haskins to visit Panthers

NFL: DEC 27 Panthers at Washington Football Team

Free agent quarterback Dwayne Haskins is drawing interest from the Panthers.

Haskins will visit Carolina on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Washington took Haskins in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft but cut him during the 2020 season. He has struggled mightily, both at developing as a pro passer and at proving he has the kind of maturity and leadership a team expects from its franchise quarterback.

The Panthers have Teddy Bridgewater coming back as the incumbent starter, but head coach Matt Rhule said he wants to see improvement from Bridgewater this offseason. The Panthers will be bringing in other quarterbacks, and Haskins could be one of them.

Because Haskins was released, he is a free agent who can sign with any team immediately and does not need to wait for the start of unrestricted free agency in March.

  1. Well if they sign him good but he is very immature and he will get released again we drafted a bust

  2. Just goes to show that you can be a distraction and do whatever you want and get a job in the NFL. Athletes are way overpaid.

  3. The Panthers have recent experience with an immature QB, so this’ll be just like old times.

  4. The guy didn’t hit anyone or do drugs. A lot worse players (conduct wise) get 3 or 4 chances. I am happy that he gets a chance and hopefully learned from his mistakes. I like a redemption story

    “The guy didn’t hit anyone or do drugs.” No. He just broke the League’s rules concerning Covid-19 multiple times, which could’ve effected the health of his teammates and their family, or caused others to test positive and miss games ( and for the team to lose because of it). “A lot worse players (conduct wise) get 3 or 4 chances.” Are you talking about players that demonstrate that they have talent? Haskins was benched in a game and his replacement was a guy that was just activated from the practice squad. And that guy played better then Haskins, in the same game, against the same defense, with the same offensive weapons. Imagine!

  6. There are a lot of great young men in America that never broke rules, or never hit anyone. But if they can’t play QB, NFL teams aren’t going to sign them to play QB. It’s not a good citizen award. It’s a leadership position, and you have to have great skills on the field, with the emphasis on “on the field”. This kid can’t play at an NFL level. Rhule is probably just breaking the ice, as he’s most likely planning to draft a QB.

  7. Carolina is looking for a clipboard handling specialist who has knowledge of local adult leisure venues.

    Must be able to take impromptu photos with fans.

  8. Haskins always was and will remain a long term project. The Washington team owner pushed him on the coaching staff. The scouts and coaches knew he wouldn’t be ready to play for a few seasons if ever. On the positive side, Haskins does have an NFL capable arm, he has pretty good pocket awareness, and he’s young. His issues are lack of commitment, immaturity, and poor mechanics. For a league minimum deal he’s worth a look from a team with a great QB coach. I wouldn’t rely on him being more than a backup coming in.

    Add in Poor Accuracy and Decision Making.

  10. He was over-drafted. He should have been a 3rd round pick at best. He will never be a franchise QB.

  11. Carolina is just going through the formalities is all folks and this is just a message to few from the coach. Relax, I honestly don’t think is Rhule is that dumb.
