Redskins Rookie QB Dwayne Haskins 'Deserves a Shot' to Start, Says HC Jay Gruden

Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins entered the 2018 season having thrown just 57 passes on the collegiate level. However, the signal-caller enjoyed a meteoric rise after tossing 50 touchdowns for the 13-1 Buckeyes last year, which preceded the Washington Redskins drafting him 15th overall in 2019.

Now head coach Jay Gruden says that the rookie could be starting for them this season.

"Oh, for sure," Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters on Thursday when asked if Haskins can start.

"I'd be silly not to. He's put enough out there on tape to say he deserves a shot, without a doubt.
