Dwayne Haskins: Criticism of reading defenses is ‘a joke’
Dwayne Haskins has been subject to a lot of criticism during his rookie year with the Washington Redskins, some of it seemingly from within his own organization.
Haskins fired back at one criticism in particular on Friday. Amid the chatter about Haskins’ unreadiness to start was talk that he was struggling to read NFL defenses, which he rejected.
Dwayne Haskins asked about reports that he might not be ready for NFL action. “That’s really a joke, I pride myself on reading defenses.” Coaches have praised Haskins a lot this week. pic.twitter.com/yuQNMrmENQ

We don’t know much about Haskins yet. He didn’t look great in his first taste of NFL action, but that was only one game. It doesn’t look like the rookie will get another chance anytime soon, but he’s at least been getting better reviews lately.
