Washington Redskins’ head coach Jay Gruden believes that rookie signal caller Dwayne Haskins deserves a shot to win the starting job for the 2019 season.

Haskins will have to beat out veteran quarterback Case Keenum if he wants to start under center for the Redskins in 2019.

“Oh, for sure,” Gruden said of Haskins’ chance to start, according to John Keim of ESPN.com. “I’d be silly not to. He’s put enough out there on tape to say he deserves a shot, without a doubt. I don’t know quite what he can do in the NFL in this system because it’s new to him, but his ability warrants the fact that, hey, let’s take a peek at this big son of a b—-.”

Gruden has been impressed with what he has seen from Haskins so far.

“You see the ‘wow’ plays and you’re like, ‘Jesus,’” Gruden said. “When he’s on, there’s nobody you’d rather have than Dwayne. Really. It’s pretty. He stands tall; he has a cannon, and he can quicken up his release. He’s got great touch. Strong, powerful arm; strong, powerful body.

However, Washington did sign veteran linebacker Jon Bostic.

Foster’s agent, Blake Baratz, ripped the organization for the timing of the decision.

The Dallas Cowboys have released veteran wide receiver Allen Hurns, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Dallas apparently asked Hurns to take a pay cut this offseason, so it’s likely that their request and this release are related.

Hurns hauled in 20 passes for 295 yardss and 2 touchdowns last season, which was a far cry from expectations when the Cowboys inked him to a two-year, $12 million contract.
