The Washington Football Team have released quarterback Dwayne Haskins, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported.
The former first-round pick was just demoted to third string QB.
The Washington Football Team can clinch a playoff spot with a win in Week 17 and coach Ron Rivera is optimistic that Alex Smith will be back.
Statement from Dwayne Haskins:
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 I take full responsibility for not meeting the standards of a NFL QB & will become a better man & player because of this experience.
