The 24-year-old's death comes just weeks before his birthday on May 3, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Schefter said that at the time of his death, Haskins had been training with some of the team's quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers.
Haskins stood out at Ohio State, where he led the Buckeyes to a Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl victory in the 2018 season before playing for Washington and Pittsburgh and losing his steam.
Though he initially joined the team in the 2021 offseason, Haskins didn't see any playing time but still had hope for his NFL career.
Haskins went 3-10 as a starter in both seasons. He completed 60 percent of his passes and threw 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
Just last month, Haskins signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh team for his second chance in the League.
