Ben Roethlisberger pays tribute to Dwayne Haskins

They were only teammates for a short time, Dwayne Haskins and Ben Roethlisberger, but the retired quarterback still felt a bond with Haskins.

He shared his experiences in a touching letter after Haskins, 24, died in a tragic accident on Saturday.

“He came to work every day with a smile on his face and energy and love in his heart,” said Roethlisberger wrote in the letter he shared on social media. “I really enjoyed his passion and love for the game and his desire to learn and be the best. We will miss his smile and zest for life!

“I wish we had more time together on this earth but I will cherish the time and laughter we had! I’ll say it again just like I said it to your face, I still wish I could throw the ball like you!! I love you buddy.”

Haskins, a star at Ohio State, spent last season as the Steelers’ third-string quarterback and recently trained with Steelers teammates in South Florida. He was struck by a dump truck and killed while walking on I-595 West in front of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Saturday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. It’s unclear why Haskins ran on the freeway. Ben Roethlisberger pays tribute to Dwayne Haskins
