Quarterback Dwayne Haskins visited with the Carolina Panthers first, but he has found a new home elsewhere. He has signed a one-year reserve/future contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers after a visit Thursday.

The Panthers previously had him in to meet with the team Jan. 11 and offered the quarterback a contract after the meeting,`per a source with direct knowledge of the situation. That meeting took place prior to the team hiring new general manager Scott Fitterer.

However, Haskins opted to go to Pittsburgh instead,

He chose the more stabile option, and the one that fit his situation a little better. He needs to learn to be a pro, not be thrust into the fire before he's ready. I'm impressed that he even realized it. Now he can sit behind Ben for at least a year and learn and hopefully grow. He has the physical tools. Now it's just a matter of getting his mind right and seeing how high his ceiling is.

Funny how people act as if suddenly becoming a millionaire celebrity at age 22 should have no impact on your maturity.  These athletes are put on a pedestal--many from poor homes---and suddenly surrounded by fame and fortune.  They have never failed in sports--always the best athlete on the field, and that is what they believe they are.  So much depends on the athlete's support system.  I expect this coaching staff to kick the tires on a lot a players that we would call "damaged goods".

    • Well, I took a look at three different measures of offensive line futility in 2020; Football Outsiders Adjusted Sack Rate, ESPN's Pass Block Win Rate and Pro Football References Pass Pressure Percentage. I took the bottom ten of each ranking, the QB with the most starts on the team and then compared them across a wide variety of QB statistical measures from multiple sources(PFR, Football Outsiders, NFL Next Gen Stats). This resulted in a group of 19 QB's from "oft pressured" teams. The amazing thing was that across a very wide variety of QB's(career backups, veteran journeymen, rookies, players with less than 3 years of NFL experience, elite QB's, etc), Sam Darnold managed to finish in the bottom five of almost every statistical category(10 of the 11, to be exact).  So, while I completely understand that he didn't have good protection, none of these QB's had good protection last season, Darnold was just so consistently bad. The only other QB to be as consistently in the bottom five, was Dwayne Haskins.  Frankly, there have been very few QB's in the NFL(if any) over the past three seasons that have been as bad as Sam Darnold. That should be a concern to every Panthers fan. How much of this is Adam Gase? Almost assuredly a decent chunk of it. How much of it is lack of talent around him? Probably a significant portion of it. But how much is just him not being able to have what it takes to be a successful NFL QB? That is the million dollar question. My fear, is that we are going to find out the answer to that question will end up being, "Enough to matter." Adjusted Sack Rate Bottom 10 10. Baltimore - Lamar Jackson 9. Cincinnati - Joe Burrow 8.

    • Roster isnt set yet. Get back to me in August 
    • This is exactly what I was thinking, it would definitely put the Chiefs organization in the position of assuming risk.
