Before joining the NFL, Haskins was a standout quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes. In his sophomore year in 2018, where he threw for 4,831 yards, 50 touchdowns and eight interceptions while completing 70.0-percent of his passes. That year, Haskins led the Buckeyes to a Big Ten Championship and a Rose Bowl victory over Washington.

Haskins declared for the NFL Draft in 2019, where he was selected by the now-Washington Commanders with the 15th-overall pick. The quarterback’s tenure in Washington lasted less than two years, as the team released him.

In 2021, Haskins signed with the Steelers. Just this offseason, the team signed him to a one-year restricted free agent tender.

We would like to send our condolence to Haskins’ family, friends and colleagues.
