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".
