The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Dwayne Haskins this offseason to add depth and quarterback and with the hope of revitalizing the former first-round pick’s career. With practices underway, Mike Tomlin seems to be taking a special interest in his new quarterback.
Haskins, the No. 15 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, lasted just two seasons with the Washington Football Team. Between his poor play, lack of commitment and off-field issues, he proved to be a draft bust for WFT.
But NFL teams showed immediate interest following his release. Multiple clubs reached out, but Haskins eventually chose Tomlin’s Steelers as the best spot to revitalize his NFL career. With training camp a month away and position coaches helping players with the basics, Pittsburgh’s coach dedicated some of his time to creating an understanding with Haskins.
