It looks like Dwayne Haskins has been given another lease on life in the NFL. According to reports, the 24-year-old quarterback is expected to be part of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ initial 53-man roster heading into the new campaign.

This report comes via NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport:

This comes as a welcome development for Haskins, who did not exactly make waves for the Steelers in the offseason. The former Ohio State standout signed with Pittsburgh as an offseason addition, and he went 37-of-58 for 379 yards in four games. Haskins also scored on two touchdowns and had one interception in what was a mediocre offseason stint.

The good news for him is that the Steelers appear to like what they saw and he is now being given a chance to prove himself in the upcoming season. Haskins can’t get too excited, however, as he is expected to be the Steelers’ No. 3 quarterback behind Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph. Anything can happen, though, and so long as he’s on the roster, there is always a chance he works his way up in the pecking order.

Haskins, a first-round pick in 2019, was released by Washington late last season after he violated COVID-19 protocols. His subpar play also played a key role in Washington’s decision to cut him from the roster, but he’s worked really hard to get a shot at redemption. It seems like the Steelers are giving him just that.
