After weeks of controversy, Dwayne Haskins has been cut from the Washington Football Team.
The 23-year-old NFL quarterback has been fined $40,000 for past violations of the sports league’s coronavirus protocols to keep players and staff safe.
Haskins was disciplined first after he invited a friend to his team’s hotel before a game and against last week after he was spotted at a nightclub without a face mask.
Coach Ron Rivera said, “This afternoon I met with Dwayne and informed him that we would be releasing him. I told him that I believe it benefits both parties that we go our separate ways. We want to thank Dwayne for his contributions these last two seasons and wish him well moving forward.”
