  • Christian Hackenberg: Shifting to baseball

    Hackenberg is attempting to begin a career in professional baseball, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    The 2016 second-round pick by the Jets hasn't been on an NFL roster since August 2018, and he never played a snap during his time with New York or the Raiders. Hackenberg also played in the Alliance of American Football before it was shuttered, but he was benched after three starts. He's unlikely to make a return to football at this point, but he'll attempt to continue his athletic career on the diamond.

  • Christian Hackenberg: Benched in AAF

    Hackenberg has been benched in favor of Zach Mettenberger after making three starts for the Memphis Express in the Alliance of American Football, Dylan Rubino of reports.

    Hackenberg hoped a change in throwing mechanics would help salvage his football career, but his work with a quarterbacks coach hasn't fixed an inability to read defenses and stay calm under pressure. The Jets' 2016 second-round pick went 0-3 as a starter for Memphis, completing 51.6 percent of his passes for 4.5 yards per attempt, with no touchdowns and three interceptions. Mettenberger threw for two touchdowns after he replaced Hackenberg in the second half of Saturday's 21-17 loss to the Orlando Apollos. It's hard to imagine Hackenberg drawing any attention from the NFL in 2019.

  • Christian Hackenberg: Alters throwing mechanics

    Hackenberg recently explained that his throwing mechanics are improving thanks to coaching from his AAF quarterbacks coach, John Luciew of reports.

    The 2016 second-round pariah has been given plenty of chances in the NFL, failing to stick with the Jets, Raiders, Eagles and Bengals. Having spent the last few months with the Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football, Hackenberg discovered a mechanical flaw in his throwing motion that was affecting his accuracy. It'll be interesting to see if any NFL teams come calling this offseason to learn if the Penn State product has indeed turned a corner in his development.

  • Christian Hackenberg: Selected in AAF draft

    Hackenberg was among the quarterbacks selected in Tuesday's Alliance of Amercian Football draft, Kevin Seifert of ESPN reports.

    Hackenberg was released from the Bengals' practice squad in early November, but he's found a new home in the newly formed league. He was selected in the second round of Tuesday's quarterback draft and will be slated to compete with the likes of Troy Cook, Zach Mettenberger and Brandon Silvers. Should he win the starting job, Hackenberg could get an opportunity to prove to NFL scouts that he's worthy of a roster spot come 2019.

  • Christian Hackenberg: Released from Bengals' practice squad

    Hackenberg was released from the Bengal's practice squad Monday.

  • Christian Hackenberg: Waived by Philadelphia

    Hackenberg was let go by the Eagles on Friday, Matt Lombardo of the New Jersey Star-Ledger reports.

    Even with Carson Wentz (knee) and Nick Foles struggling through injuries all preseason, Hackenberg was unable to carve out a backup position. The 2016 second-rounder moves on from his third team of the offseason after being traded by the Jets and cut by the Raiders. Hackenberg will be an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.

  • Eagles' Christian Hackenberg: Inks deal with defending champs

    The Eagles signed Hackenberg to a contract Sunday, Tim McManus of reports.

    Philadelphia is an interesting landing spot for Hackenberg. Upon his arrival, he may receive a far amount of snaps with Carson Wentz (knee) and Nick Foles (neck) on the mend. That said, it'd be a surprise if Hackenberg beats out Nate Sudfeld for the No. 3 job due to his experience in the system.
