Dwayne Haskins hasn’t been on free-agent market for long, but he is already generating some interest.
After being released by the Washington Football Team, reports have already surfaced that an NFL team is “intrigued” by the possibility of adding the former first-round pick.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Carolina Panthers could be a team to watch when it comes to adding the ex-Ohio State star quarterback.
“While free agent QB Dwayne Haskins is unlikely to sign before the season, he is receiving interest from several teams, source said,” according to Rapoport.
“One of those is the Carolina Panthers, but there are others intrigued by Haskins.”

Haskins initially responded to the news of his release shortly after his release went public.
“My time with the Washington Football Team has unfortunately come to an end. I thank the team and fans for the opportunity to play for the team I grew up rooting for,” he said. “I take full responsibility for not meeting the standards of a NFL quarterback and will become a better man and player because of this experience.”

During his brief tenure in Washington, Haskins threw for 2,804 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions.
We’ll have to see if he gets that opportunity to turn things around.
