Another breakup for Dwayne Haskins.
Two days after he was cut by the Washington Football Team, Haskins split with super-agent David Mulugheta.
“Dwayne is a great young man with whom I wish I could have continued to work with. Yet the decision was made that a fresh start would be in Dwayne’s best interest,” Mulugheta wrote on Twitter. “I wish him nothing but success moving forward and will continue to root for him.”
Mulugheta has negotiated monster contracts for clients Deshaun Watson, Jalen Ramsey, Landon Collins, Budda Baker and Michael Thomas. He represented Haskins out of Ohio State, when the quarterback was a first-round draft pick, and through his two seasons in Washington.
The beginning of the end in Washington for Haskins started when he was fined and stripped of his captaincy after photos surfaced of a maskless Haskins associating with strippers. It continued when he was benched during an ineffective start in a crucial game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday and then left the stadium without fulfilling media obligations following a reported miscommunication; he addressed reporters later that day.
After clearing waivers to become a free agent, Haskins is drawing interest from several teams, including the Panthers, according to NFL Network. The report said Haskins is unlikely to be signed before the end of the season.
Haskins’ career in Washington got off to a rocky start on draft night, when he slipped past his preferred landing spot of No. 6 to the Giants, all the way to the No. 15 pick.
Draft cameras caught a nude photo of a woman on his phone. His father predicted Super Bowl wins for Washington that night. And the two of them launched a sports marketing firm — Haskins & Haskins — that appears to no longer have an operational website.
Haskins, 23, could get a second chance to make those dreams come true, but other recent first-round quarterbacks who flamed out quickly — Jamarcus Russell and Johnny Manziel — did not. That is the job ahead of his next agent.
