The Miami Herald reports that Haskins had “been out at a club drinking ‘heavily’ and had a significant amount of alcohol in his blood.”

He was also reportedly with a friend or family member but later the two separated after they got into an argument.

Haskins also tested positive for ketamine and norketamine.

Ketamine is used for severe depression but can also be abused. No word on if Haskins was prescribed the medication.

A Heisman Trophy finalist and all-conference selection during his three-year stint at Ohio State (where he was also named Rose Bowl MVP), the Potomac, Maryland native arrived in the NFL as a first-round pick—15th overall—of the Washington Commanders in 2019.

Haskins was cut after two seasons with Washington, but quickly caught on with Pittsburgh, spending last season as a backup to veteran Ben Roethlisberger.

Haskins had been in South Florida training for the upcoming 2022 season with many of his Steelers teammates.

Haskins wife called 9-1-1 after talking to her husband, who told her he was going to look for gas to refill his car, but he never made it back.

Haskins was 24-years old. A memorial service was held for Haskins last month on the North Side.
