Former Buckeye QB unexpectedly passes away.  

 

The former Ohio State star who was slated to enter his fourth year in the NFL, has died, his head coach said in a statement released by the team Saturday.

 

Haskins was 24 and his birthday was next month.  

 

"I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins," Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin's statement reads. "He quickly became part of our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community.

 

Haskins spent one season in Pittsburgh, playing no regular season games while backing up longtime Steeler Ben Roethlisberger, who has since retired.

 

Washington selected Haskins as the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, after the Ohio State standout was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, awarded to college football most outstanding player. Haskins played 16 games across two seasons for Washington before moving on to Pittsburgh.

 

Many other NFL Players went to twitter and gave their condolences to Haskins and the family on the loss.  Those are below.
