Detroit Lions Should Sign Dwayne Haskins – #OnePride

Written by TrevStone

Detroit Lions current backup QB’s include Chase Daniel and David Blough – Daniel is being considered one of the most overrated and overpaid backups in the league. During Detroit’s last game, backup Chase Daniel didn’t get Detroit into scoring position at all. Didn’t even get past the 50 yard line.

That finally happened when Blough came into the game and started to throw the ball around.

Now here we are. Dwayne Haskins was just released by The Washington Football Team and here I am to make the case for Detroit to reach out to Haskins after the season.

Detroit seems to never have a quarterback sitting back and learning under Stafford. Instead it’s an older backup. I’d love to see the young 23 year old in Detroit next season if he can clean his act up. Haskins needs to learn under a winner and that’ll happen with Stafford.

Unlike Chase Daniel, Haskins isn’t scared to throw the ball downfield. Plus, Daniel is 34 years old. A former first round pick, so he has talent. It’s just about reaching any potential. On the other side, Haskins has already had two head coaches in two years. That has to play a factor in his lack of success.

Why not give him a chance? If it’s now or during the offseason. Haskins is young, let him try and learn under Stafford.

I understand Haskins has had some off the field issues including going to the strip club during a pandemic. That can’t happen. He’s also young. Give him another chance. A new head coach every year is going to hurt Haskins – let him sit under Stafford and develop to the best of his ability. Let him be the Jordan Love of the Lions.
