Steelers’ Dwayne Haskins dies after being hit by a car in South Florida

Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins died Saturday morning after being hit by a car in south Florida, his agent told ESPN.

Haskins, 24, was reportedly training with fellow Steelers quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers when he was struck by a vehicle.

The former Ohio State standout has been in the NFL since 2019, first with Washington and then as a third-string quarterback with the Steelers. Haskins was drafted 15th overall in 2019 but struggled when he landed the starting job with Washington.

Prior to his promotion to the league, the New Jersey native led Ohio State to the 2018 Rose Bowl, defeating Washington in Urban Meyer’s final game as head coach. Memorably, he came off the bench in 2017 when JT Barrett was injured mid-game in Ann Arbor to guide the Buckeyes to a win over Michigan.

That seemed to put Haskins on the path to stardom, but by the time Washington reached the NFL, he was struggling with his work ethic and repeated COVID-19 violations. At the end of the 2020 season, he was benched for Taylor Heinicke before being sacked.

The Steelers signed him in 2021 and used him as the third-string QB behind Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph.

He did not play last season and was inactive except for one game.
