According to Schefter, Haskins made a reservation for a family friend at the team hotel which is strictly prohibited by the team.

In total, Washington fined Haskins $4,833. The ax could have been $14,650.

Haskins was benched in favor of Kyle Allen a few weeks ago and has been the team’s No. 3 quarterback. He was later dealing with an illness, which led to him being inactive. 

Haskins has come up as a potential trade candidate. However, John Keim of ESPN reported last week that no team has yet called Washington to inquire about a potential trade him. 

Haskins, 23, was selected by Washington with the No. 14 overall pick after many believed he would end up being a top-10 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. According to OverTheCap.com, Haskins received a four-year, $14,416,600 rookie contract that included an $8,504,800 signing bonus. 

Haskins’ contract includes a fifth-year option for Washington to pick up in 2022.

In 2020, Haskins has started four games for Washington and completed 61 percent of his passes for 939 yards to go along with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He has also rushed for 30 yards.
