Dwayne Haskins' time with the Washington Football Team ended in a blink of an eye due to his struggles on and off the field.

Fortunately for Haskins, the Pittsburgh Steelers were willing to take a chance on him. They signed the Ohio State product to a one-year, $850,000 contract.

Haskins won't be competing for the starting job this season since that role belongs to Ben Roethlisberger. He could, however, beat out Mason Rudolph for the second spot on the depth chart - if all goes well, of course.

With the offseason workout program in full swing for most NFL teams, Haskins revealed his goal with the Steelers this summer. It turns out that he just wants to show that he's all in on football.

"I just want to prove to the coaching staff and my teammates that I love football," Haskins told reporters on Thursday.

This is exactly what Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wants to hear. He recently said that he's trying to figure out who Haskins is as a person before he focuses on his skillset.

"I’ve been more concerned about Dwayne the person – what he’s been through, how it’s affected the growth and development of his game,” Tomlin said.

Haskins won't be guaranteed a roster spot in Pittsburgh, so he'll have to earn it over the next few months. It'll be interesting to see how he responds to that challenge.
