Gruden calls Haskins a “wild card”
Dwayne Haskins’ flashes produce moments of joy, other throws let them know Haskins needs more seasoning.
But with spring practices completed, they’ve seen enough to know that this year’s 15th overall pick is a serious contender for the starting job. “Oh, for sure,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. “I’d be silly not to. He’s put enough out there on tape to say he deserves a shot, without a doubt.” (ESPN)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Gruden went on to call Haskins a “wild card”. With only Colt McCoy and Case Keenum, to beat out, it’s likely Haskins will at least makes some starts this season even if he doesn’t land the job out of training camp.
