PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – NFL Network is reporting that former Ohio State Quarterback Dwayne Haskins is visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers on a free-agent visit Thursday.

The former first-round pick was released by Washington during the regular season. He was originally the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Haskins posted a record of 3-10 as a starter. He threw for 2,804 yards with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

The former Buckeye also recently visited the Carolina Panthers.
