Michael Irvin on Dwayne Haskins' death: 'Hate that his time got cut short'

The former Washington and 匹兹堡钢人队 quarterback came into the NFL before the start of the 2019 季节. He was Washington’s first-round pick of the 2019 draft and started 13 games for the team between 2019 和 2020. He was let go after the 2020 season and was signed by the Steelers before the 2021 季节. He served primarily in the backup role.

Michael Irvin, a former Dallas Cowboys legend who serves as an analyst for the NFL Network and continues to watch the team closely, told Fox News Digital in a recent interview he only met Haskins maybe once and feltbadlywhen he heard the news of the quarterback’s passing.

I felt so badly when I heard that news. I felt badly when I watched some of the things that went down with him in the few years he had in the NFL. I thought he was thrown in a tough situation in Washington. It’s a tough situation,” Irvin said.

Irvin, who recently became an investor in the education platform TradeZing, said he was hoping Haskins was going to continue to develop and progress back into a starting quarterback.

There’s a lot of pressure put on quarterbacks coming into this league, and the quarterback has to carry this mantra, and it’s a difficult mantra to carry. They expect you to be a certain way and lead a bunch of grown men, and I thought he needed a little more time,” Irvin said. “He could have developed into all that he wanted to be in the National Football League.

I just hate that his time got cut short, and I’m praying for his family and his friends.

It wasn’t immediately known why Haskins was traveling on the highway at the time. He appeared to be in South Florida over the course of the week practicing with Steelers teammates Mitchell Trubisky, running back Najee Harris and tight end Pat Freiermuth.
