Ex-NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins was ‘targeted and drugged’ in ‘blackmail’ plot before death, lawsuit alleges

Apr 10, 2023

A lawsuit filed a year after Dwayne Haskins' untimely death on April 9, 2022, alleged that the former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was "targeted and drugged" before being fatally struck on a Florida highway as a part of a "blackmail and robbery conspiracy," an attorney representing the Haskins family said in a statement Monday.

The lawsuit filed in Broward County, Florida, last month reportedly named 14 defendants in the suit, including the driver of the dump truck that struck Haskins as he attempted to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 on foot in the early morning hours of April 9, 2022.

"Many questions remain as to why the truck driver did not avoid hitting Dwayne given the highly visible activity in the area before the impact and the fact that the other drivers did not hit Dwayne," attorney Rick Ellsley said in a statement.
