Dwayne Haskins has found a trusted mentor in Alex Smith

ASHBURN, Va. -- The conversations take place all the time, whether at their lockers or in between meetings. Washington Redskins quarterbacks Alex Smith provides snippets of wisdom for rookie Dwayne Haskins. And it's rarely about the X's or the O's.

This week's topic, of course, might include Haskins taking a selfie with fans instead of being on the field for Washington's final snap. Haskins said he thought the game was over. But he already knows what he should do in the future and Smith's guidance will help focus him on matters of greater importance.
