Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will begin the era of head coach Ron Rivera as the team's No. 1 quarterback, according to senior vice president of player development Doug Williams Friday, Feb. 7. 'The new staff knows that Dwayne Haskins is the starting quarterback here,' Williams said. 'The only thing that can happen is for Dwayne to give it back to them. It's up to him to learn the playbook, wear the coaches out. He's got to stay at the facility until they run him out of the building. ...
'Dwayne has a long way to go. But like I told him, he was doing what we expected him to do. He was ascending. Hopefully the way he goes now, he keeps going up. All eyes are going to be on him. At the same time you've got a new coaching staff and they're not married to him.'
Huddle Up: Haskins struggled in his rookie season, finishing the 2019 campaign with 1,365 yards and seven touchdowns against seven interceptions while completing 58.6 percent of his passes. It seems as though he'll be given the opportunity to earn the starting job, but the new coaching staff won't hesitate to pull the plug if he's not performing at the desired level. He's a risky QB2 without much upside and dynasty managers should be exploring trade options while there's still some hope.

Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins will need to earn the starting job leading up the 2020 season, according to comments made by head coach Ron Rivera, who said that, 'We won't know until we get ready to open up in September,' while also mentioning that the team has 'good veteran quarterbacks that [will] get some opportunities to play.'
Huddle Up: Haskins did fairly well down the stretch, but he was hardly lighting up defenses. Still, this might just be Rivera trying to keep Haskins motivated and hungry leading into the Ohio State product's second NFL campaign.
