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.
