Dwayne Haskins Could Be Traded Prior to the Trade Deadline

SJ - October 11, 2020

That's the expectation anyway.

It was reported on Sunday that teams around the league are anticipating that the Washington Football Team will attempt to trade quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

The benching of Haskins and the fact that he was made the team's third string quarterback certainly supports that report.

From CBS Sports:

Some rival executives have already begun looking at film of the former Ohio State star, anticipating him being moved in the coming weeks, with Kyle Allen -- who has deep ties to this coaching staff -- taking over as starter, veteran Alex Smith now the No. 2 quarterback and Haskins demoted all the way to third string.

Several sources close to Haskins have advised him that a trade would be far and away the best outcome possible, ideally to a solid franchise with an experienced veteran QB the 23-year-old could learn from. Haskins was not drafted by this regime, which was not high on him coming out of college. He is not a fit in their system, and his personality has rubbed them the wrong way since early on. Sources say with almost no practice time now and likely to be a healthy scratch many weeks, it's difficult for Haskins to envision a future for himself in Washington, where his development has never felt like a priority dating back to last season, when soon-to-be-fired coach Jay Gruden threw him into regular season games before many believed he was ready.

It's not that surprising that things aren't working out for Haskins in Washington.  Quarterbacks have a long history of issues with that franchise.

The Daniel Snyder era has been a complete failure in almost every way imaginable.
