Free-agent QB Christian Hackenberg (Raiders) met with the New England Patriots Thursday, June 14, according to sources.

Jun 12 5:00pm ET

The Oakland Raiders waived quarterback Christian Hackenberg on Tuesday, according to a source. Hackenberg has been a bust ever since the Jets made him a second-round selection in 2016, and he has yet to play in a regular season game. Hackenberg may struggle to land with another team.

Jun 12 4:53pm ET

Oakland Raiders QB Christian Hackenberg was waived Tuesday, June 12, according to a source.

May 26 10:23pm ET

The New York Jets will only receive a seventh-round pick from the Oakland Raiders as part of the Christian Hackenberg trade if Hackenberg makes Oakland's roster out of training camp and remains on the roster during the season.

May 23 12:40am ET

The Oakland Raiders acquired quarterback Christian Hackenberg from the New York Jets on Tuesday in exchange for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick, according to Jets head coach Todd Bowles. Hackenberg has been a monumental bust as a second-round pick in 2016 and has yet to play in a regular season game. He was fourth on the Jets depth chart and was unhappy with his situation, although he'll now be fourth on Oakland's depth chart behind Derek Carr, Connor Cook and EJ Manuel. Hackenberg is certainly no lock to make the roster out of training camp.

May 22 4:53pm ET

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg was acquired by the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, May 22, in exchange for a conditional seventh round pick, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

May 22 2:40pm ET

New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg sounds ready to move on after speaking to the media Tuesday. Hackenberg has been working on his throwing motion this year, but he's currently fourth on the depth chart behind Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and third overall pick Sam Darnold. Hackenberg, a second-round pick in 2016, has yet to throw a pass in a regular season game and will likely be cut by Gang Green eventually.

May 6 9:23pm ET

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he learned about the changes to QB Christian Hackenberg's throwing motion after the fact, but a source said the team was fully aware of the changes.

May 4 12:10am ET

New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg has been working with quarterbacks coach Jeff Christensen in an attempt to reboot his throwing motion. The Jets second-round pick in 2016, Hackenberg has looked overmatched in practices and preseason for the team and hasn't attempted a regular season pass in two years. With Gang Green drafting Sam Darnold third overall this year, Hackenberg isn't a lock to make the final roster, even after the club released Bryce Petty on Thursday.

May 3 9:33pm ET

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg has been working with quarterback coach Jeff Christensen this offseason in an attempt to rework his throwing motion.

Mar 4 1:40pm ET

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles was noncommittal on the team's plans for Christian Hackenberg when speaking at the Scouting Combine. "We'll see what his role is going forward," said Bowles. "He's got to correct a lot of things, obviously." Hackenberg is entering his third NFL season, but has yet to see the field and ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini concedes it's "probably time to move on." The Jets will likely address quarterback in free agency, Kirk Cousins is reportedly their top target, and may also add a backup in the upcoming draft. That could leave Hackenberg and Bryce Petty both looking for new teams.

Mar 4 12:13pm ET

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg's status with the team likely will depend on what the team does at quarterback during free agency.

Jan 2 12:40pm ET

The New York Jets tried their best to hand their 2017 starting quarterback job to quarterback Christian Hackenberg, but Hackenberg proved last summer he is simply not an NFL quarterback (or backup). He was so bad, in fact, that the team didn't even give the second-year pro any game action when starter Josh McCown went down for the year. Still, according to Jets' General Manager Mike Maccagnan, the "book" on Hackenberg "is not closed". Typical front office speak for a failed draft pick if there ever was one. If Hackenberg remains on the Jets' roster in 2018, Maccagnan should be fired based off that alone. The former Penn State signal-caller will likely be practice squad fodder somewhere next season.

Dec 27 9:23pm ET

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg could get his first career playing time in the regular season when the club plays its finale Sunday, Dec. 31, versus the New England Patriots. When asked if Hackenberg could see action in the contest, head coach Todd Bowles said, 'We'll see.' Bowles added that he'd make his decision 'probably sometime during the game.'

Dec 27 4:30pm ET

New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg may see some action in Week 17 against the Patriots, although Bryce Petty will start the game. Head coach Todd Bowles said he'll make a decision on a QB change during the game depending on how things unfold. Hackenberg, a second-round pick in 2016, has yet to take a snap in an official regular season game. Petty has been pretty bad the last two weeks, as expected, but Hackenberg may actually be worse. Stay as far away from the Jets quarterback situation as you can.

Dec 21 9:23pm ET

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is working exclusively with the scout team and has been splitting reps with practice squad QB Joel Stave, according to a source.

Dec 21 5:20pm ET

New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg continues to work exclusively with the scout team in practice and is splitting repetitions with third-stringer Joel Stave, according to a source. Head coach Todd Bowles gave Bryce Petty a vote of confidence after Petty's start in Week 15, making it likely that nothing will change in the pecking order for the final two games of the season. Hackenberg hasn't practiced with the starters since training camp, and he clearly isn't close to being NFL-ready despite being drafted in the second round last year. Hackenberg is perhaps the least fantasy relevant player in the NFL at this point and seems likely to be released in the offseason.
