The NFL world is still reeling from the passing of former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

He was just 24 when a truck tragically hit him while he was walking on a South Florida highway over the weekend.

The teams released their statements shortly after the unfortunate incident was confirmed.

ESPN insider Adam Schefter also drew attention when he cast Haskins in a bad light via his tweet.

But more people relived their fond memories of the former Ohio State Buckeye, as ESPN NFL Nation reporter for the Steelers Brooke Pryor shared.

Pryor shared head coach Mike Tomlin’s statement about Haskins in a two-part tweet.

Tomlin said, “He quickly became part of our Steelers family when he arrived in Pittsburgh.”

The longtime Steelers head coach also shared his times of being a great teammate and part of the community.

To which Pryor commented: “The loss of Dwayne Haskins is unfathomable in every way, and it’s clear from the outpouring of grief around the Steelers and NFL organization how much of an impact he’s had in so little time.”

Hoping to bounce back

Haskins struggled to live up to expectations in Washington when he was selected 15th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft.

However, the 2022 season could have been an opportunity for him to prove his abilities.

While the Steelers signed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to a two-year contract, Tomlin would still consider the performances of Haskins and Mason Rudolph during training camp.

Sadly, the world will never know now that Haskins passed away.

His legacy will live on in Pittsburgh and everywhere he played because of the type of individual he was on and off the court.
