MIAMI — The sports world is in mourning after Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins lost his life in a traffic accident Saturday morning around 6:30 a.m. in South Florida. He was only 24. According to police reports, Haskins’ automobile ran out of gas on Interstate 595. Rather than wait for road assistance, the maligned signal-caller egressed the vehicle then inexplicably tried to dart through traffic on foot. Haskins was struck by a garbage truck. Florida Highway Patrol officers pronounced him dead at the scene. Haskins, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, was labeled a bust by many which brings his mindset into question. After all, he went from being a starter to working third-string on the scout team. Was he depressed? Haskins was also filthy rich so how the f*ck do you run out of gas?
Just sayin,’ anyone of sound mind wouldn’t take that kind of risk.
Now people are speculating suicide.
“I hate anytime anybody is killed or anybody dies. But he was a guy that was living to be dead,” said former Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt, 90, during an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio. “They told him don’t, under any circumstances, leave school early. You just don’t have the work habits. You don’t have this, you don’t have that. What did he do? Left school early. Maybe if he stayed in school… he wouldn’t do silly things … [like] jogging on a highway.”
Damn, that’s cold.
ESPN reporter Adam Schefter disseminated the following insensitive tweet: “Dwayne Haskins, a standout at Ohio State before struggling to catch on with Washington and Pittsburgh in the NFL, died this morning when he got hit by a car in South Florida.”
Twitter reaction was unforgiving.
Quondam NFL quarterback Cardale Jones, a teammate of Haskins at Ohio State, wrote, “Dwayne Haskins, son, husband, buckeye brother, friend, beloved teammate has passed away. What the f*ck his career ups and downs have to do with him unfortunately losing his life? Shut the f*ck up! Let his friends & family grieve instead of throwing shade.”
Baltimore Ravens signal-caller Lamar Jackson chimed in with, “Adam Schefter you lame as f*ck.”
Washington Post reporter Robert Klemko wrote, “In all my criticism of Schefter I never stopped to consider the possibility he might just be a stupid person.”
Retired receiver Dez Bryant added, “Athletes for the record… the sh*t Adam Schefter wrote that’s how a lot of people view us… we ain’t sh*t but entertainment!”
Haskins is black.
Brandt and Shefter are white.
The Woke mob is already hollering racism.
Haskins would’ve turned 25 on May 3rd.
He leaves behind his wife, Kalabrya.

The Steelers get run over by a dump truck evertime they play Patriots
One time me and my wife got on the freeway and there was a drunk guy walking with an alcohol bottle in hand. I could’ve very very easily hit him.
Who cares? Black man jaywalks and gets hit by a car. Also, water is wet.
Disturbing and sad. What would have caused Haskins to be out on the freeway with cars swerving to miss him? He would have had to have known it was not safe to have vehicles speeding towards him. We often don’t know if a person is struggling despite them having a cheerful and likeable outward personality.
lol Claypool films himself crying
This will end when football does.
CTE is real folks, not fake news.
I pray for his wife, parents, and family.
The question needs to be asked, was this a result of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy?
Shalom to his family.
Was he high on PCP.
clearly killed himself
He probably would have done better if he had not ended up in the dumpster fire of Washington.
Shefter should be ashamed of himself
Why the fuck was crossing the freeway
24. He was 24, I cannot imagine how my life would be if the world saw my mistakes, professionally or not, in my early 20s. Some ppl can’t even take criticism in private, let alone with the pressure of the most popular sport in the US. Grace, grace, grace y’all. 🤦🏾♀️ Rest easy, D. Haskins Jr.
He should’ve just called a tow truck instead of crossing a dangerous highway! You can’t play hero all the time or just take a difficult situation in your own hands & think that nothing can happen to you?! Best to call for help, this could’ve been avoided if the victim & his vehicle was moved to a safe place! 😔
this ain’t tragic this is just stupidity you don’t have insurance Allstate Geico farmers State Farm Insurance, the freeway is one of the most dangerous places to get out of your car, he could have been at home right now by calling one of the insurance companies and telling them that he’s ran out of gas on the freeway they would have came to assist him within 15 minutes at the end of the day he calls his own death by being impatient
