Ron Rivera refuses to name Dwayne Haskins the starting quarterback for the Washington Football Team, but listening to the coach's comments about the second-year passer, it sure sounds like it's Haskins job.
"He’s done a great job of studying, preparing and getting himself ready for this. He’s been great," Rivera said Tuesday morning. "He’s been on the field, doing the things we’ve asked of him. He’s done the extra stuff that he and I talked about in the offseason. He’s done the things that, I think, puts him right there where he needs to be at this junction of where we are in our training, having only been able to do zoom and now only having four days of work on the field."
A lot of the news has been about Smith this offseason and how good he's looked to this point, but he still has a long way to go the story said. Allen played for Rivera last year in Carolina and got off to a hot start before coming back to reality a bit. According to this story at least, it sounds like the job will be Haskins even though Rivera is advertising an open competition.
