“I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins,” said Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. “He quickly became part out our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Kalabrya, and his entire family during this difficult time.”
Rest in Peace, Dwayne.
