Haskins turning heads at Redskins minicamp

  • As in the days of Robert Griffin III, the Redskins have a quarterback as their latest symbol of hope: Dwayne Haskins.
  • The Redskins don’t yet know if Haskins will start this season, as coach Jay Gruden has said there will be an open competition for the No. 1 job.
  • The Redskins, who drafted Haskins with the 15th overall pick, are preaching patience.
  • The Redskins want to improve Haskins’ footwork.
  • Williams, who quarterbacked the Redskins to a victory in Super Bowl XXII, said he liked how Haskins handled himself at the line, was in control and had players aligned in the right areas.
  • The fans snapped pictures, asked Haskins questions about playing in his hometown and shouted his name – “Mr. Haskins!” – to get an autograph.
  • “The biggest thing I need to do is play well on Sundays, and that’s all I’m looking forward to,” Haskins said.
