Haskins scheduled to visit Panthers
Former Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins is planning to visit with the Panthers this Monday, per league sources with knowledge of the information. Haskins, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFLdraft out of Ohio State, was waived by Washington on Dec. 28, a day after the team’s 20-13 loss to the Panthers. He was benched in the fourth quarter for former Carolina quarterback Taylor Heinicke. The Panthers were among several teams to express interest in signing the quarterback days after Washington had moved on from him. The visit is exploratory in a nature and it does not necessarily mean the team will sign the quarterback. Carolina is currently in the process of interviewing general manager candidates. While Panthers head coach Matt Rhule has said that he does not want general manager responsibilities, the timing of the visit is interesting considering a new GM has not been hired. The visit was first reported by NFL Network. In 16 games the past two years, Haskins completed 60.1% of his passes for 2,804 yards, 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
