‘Learn from this and bounce back’: NFL world reacts to Washington’s release of QB Dwayne Haskins

Soon after news that the Washington Football Team had released quarterback Dwayne Haskins on Monday, current and former NFL players, media members and even a former NFL team executive took to social media to offer everything from encouraging words to general surprise to hindsight from the 2019 NFL draft first-round pick.

Haskins was benched in the fourth quarter in Sunday’s Week 16 game after throwing two interceptions and losing a fumble in a 20-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Washington coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Taylor Heinicke, who replaced Haskins in Sunday’s game, would start in the team’s regular-season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles if Alex Smith remains sidelined with a right calf injury.

Check out some of the social media reaction from players such as Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant.
