But not too long ago, they had former Ohio State standout Dwayne Haskins.
Unfortunately, Haskins is gone too soon after being struck by a dump truck while attempting to cross Interstate 595 in Florida.
He was 24 years old.
Haskins spent two seasons with the team after being drafted 15th overall in the 2019 draft.
That’s why the team remembered him on what would have been his 25th birthday.

The team shared a picture during the 2022 draft wherein the attendees offered a moment of silence for Haskins.
The caption reads, “Today would have been his 25th birthday. Rest easy, Dwayne.”
Washington had high hopes from him after spending three seasons with the Buckeyes.
However, he ended up playing only two seasons after redshirting his first year.
He had a breakout year in his final collegiate football season, tallying 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns.
Those numbers made Washington feel that he was the franchise quarterback they’ve been looking for since Joe Theismann.
Sadly, Haskins did not fulfill the hype.
Losing A Shot At NFL Redemption
The Pittsburgh Steelers hoped they could get something out of Haskins after signing him last season.
But he did not play a single snap during Ben Roethlisberger‘s final season.
Instead, his NFL career will forever be unfulfilled.
The Steelers drafted Kenny Pickett to fill his spot.
Even then, football fans will always remember Haskins for his play and the way he carried himself off the field.
