Dwayne Haskins has been released by the Washington Football Team … this after he was caught partying it up without a mask.
The announcement was made Monday following the team’s loss to the Carolina Panthers. The poor record this season — plus Dwayne’s on-camera COVID-risky screw-up, we imagine — were the final straw for upper management.
Bottom line, the former first-round draft pick is out.
The 2nd year QB released a statement saying, “My time with the WFT has unfortunately come to an end. I thank the team & fans for the opportunity to play for the team I grew up rooting for.”
He adds, “I take full responsibility for not meeting the standards of a NFL QB & will become a better man & player because of this experience.”
Of course, Dwayne is probably talking about the fact he was recently caught raging with strippers (sans masks or distancing) on the heels of his team’s loss to the Seahawks.
Not only that, but Dwayne simply wasn’t living up to expectations after Washington made him its top pick in 2019.
For its part, WFT management says they talked to Dwayne, and basically said … it’d be best if they went their separate ways.
