So, the WFT decided to keep benched quarterback Dwayne Haskins instead of trade him at yesterday’s deadline.
So, where do we go from here?
“It’s funny, I benched the guy and it’s like everybody thinks his career is over here in Washington. It’s not. There’s potential, there’s opportunity. The kid has an NFL arm, it’s just a matter of him developing,” coach Ron Rivera said on The Rich Eisen Show.
Asked directly about his belief level in Haskins, Rivera responded that it “is probably somewhere in the 70s.”
Rivera repeatedly said that Haskins has an NFL arm and the talent to play in the league, but the coach also repeatedly said one phrase that stood out:
“He’s got a lot to learn.”
