ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter apologized Monday after his insensitive and since-deleted tweet announcing the death of NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins over the weekend.
“The focus should’ve been on Dwayne,” Schefter continued. “Who he was as a person, a husband, a friend and so much more. I want to apologize to Dwayne’s family, his friends, players in the National Football League and offer my condolences to everybody close to Dwayne.”
Schefter went on to share a two-minute amended tribute to the late Steelers QB. Speaking about how Dwayne was seen by teammates, coaches and the Pittsburgh community. Touching on his incredible selflessness, likability and work ethic to become the man he became at 24 years old.
