I'm thinking Cam Heyward likes the signing.
Buckeye Connection for sure. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I don't think I will. It'll be a waste of money in the end.

You very well could be right. I'm not making any predictions about what he'll turn out to be. But I always root for former Ohio State players.

He's young, so he's got a chance to be good and it's not like he was a fluke college QB. Yes, he only played 1 full season at Ohio State but the 8 games he played in before he was the starter, he played pretty well there too. Just very weary right now about signing, what in this moment in time, is a scrub QB to back up our HoF QB who probably will be gone after next year.

He doesn't have the experience to demand something like that. He better thank the Steelers for giving him a second chance. Change his ways and keep his mouth shut. He has an opportunity to sit behind & learn from a 1st ballot HOFer. He couldn't ask for a better opportunity.

When he announced he was leaving I said he was insane. You mentioned the lack of CFB experience he had coming into the league. That's can't be understated. He wasn't ready. He needed at least one more full season on the CFB level before he made the jump.

He's in a damn good situation now. Solid organization. Winning team. Alotta vets. He has everything he would need to succeed right in front of him. All he needs to do is grow up and start acting like a professional athlete and not an irresponsible college kid.

Mood number 1. Hopeful.

Mood number 2. First Bell, then AB, now JuJu and Chase and then we add on Haskins. 2021 is gonna be a LOOONG season.

Depends on the guaranteed money. If not much, he's a flyer and worth seeing what he has in camp. If it's substantial guaranteed money, well... then it's a gamble.

Hoping that Haskins won't be a complete dumbass. But if he is you know the Steelers will get rid of him. And rightfully so.

Have a feeling he'll do as much for Pittsburgh as Paxton Lynch did.
Might be something to that... Haskins becomes the new scout team QB to help them prep for Lamar Jackson lol

I doubt his homies are moving with him to Pittsburgh.

I'd be willing to bet it's the League minimum.

“Waste of money”

It’s a futures contract. Which is essentially an offseason minimum contract. It’s what they give Practice Squad players or UDFAs that are essentially trying out. Doesn’t even go into the books until the new league year. They have very little commitment here if this doesn’t work out.

Feel bad for the kid. Never got a shot. Very sharp mind but his mechanics were always suspect.
