Jan 8, 2020 10:35 AM

Ron Rivera likes Dwayne Haskins, but isn't ready to commit to him as the quarterback of the future for the Washington Redskins.

"We're going to have an interesting set of circumstances that we'll go through as we go through the OTAs and into minicamp and then training camp," Rivera said. "But one thing that I will do ... once we feel comfortable, is to go ahead and make that decision so we can go forward and give these guys the opportunity to develop."

Rivera earlier made clear what he wants to see from Haskins.

"He's going to have to step up and become a leader," Rivera said. "All the great ones have become leaders and they've become leaders whether they're rookies or they're 10-, 12-year vets."
