Time to say goodbye to Dwayne Haskins. The Washington Football Team officially released Haskins. Allana and Tiffany are back with another exciting episode of Rile’d Up. The duo unpacks why they believe Washington decided to dismiss their young quarterback.

This week they are joined by Marcus Matthews, who is the head of social media for ESPN’s The Undefeated. Matthews is also a DMV native, a Howard University graduate, and a big-time Washington Football Team fan.

In this conversation, Matthews expressed that he’s happy to see Haskins leave in order to get Washington back on the map to win a Super Bowl in the future, hopefully.

Matthews reminds Allana and Tiffany that Haskins has had multiple chances and is not producing. He also delved into how Haskins has conducted himself off the field, which became another red flag.

They also discussed the future of Washington. Matthews is unsure if Taylor Heinicke could lead the team to success. He also evaluated free agency prospects like Cam Newton or Carson Wentz, rather than attempting to take another quarterback late in the draft.

Matthews is excited to see what’s next for Washington and hopes that Haskins will use this as a learning opportunity. He deeply wishes another NFL team will come knocking but knows that Washington isn’t a fit for Haskins.
