    Post RIP: Dwayne Haskins Killed

    Sad News: Former Ohio State / Current Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins dies after being hit by car


    Haskins.jpg

    According to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins has died at the age of 24 after being hit by a car in south Florida. This information came to Schefter per Haskinsí agent Cedric Saunders. Haskins joined the Steelers before the 2021 season and looked to be in the mix to battle for the starting quarterback job this season after the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger.

    Details are scarce at the moment but we will share any updates we have as they come in. For now, our hearts go out to Haskinsí family during this time. Haskins played his college football at Ohio State and was drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft by the Washington Commanders.

    Presumably Haskins was in south Florida by invitation of Mitch Trubisky who had invited his new teammates to his home to work out and get to know each other.

    It has me really curious on the details.

    A real shame that he was somewhere that he really had a good chance of jumping into the limelight this year or next and then this happened.

    What an awful tragedy and such a young man with a promising career.

    Very tragic.

    Not sure of the circumstances, since they weren't mentioned, but, I will never understand why we as a society put up with such reckless drivers on the roads today. The way people drive is literally insane. We make little kids wear masks, but allow reckless drivers to wreak havoc on our roadways. Not to sound dramatic, but we are witnessing the literal decline of Western civilization in real time.

    He was walking on a highway and a dump truck hit him.

    He was attempting to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 when there was oncoming traffic.
    There's somerhing not yet being reported about this. Did this guy have off the field issues?
