Christian Hackenberg has found his next home and potential path to redemption.
Signing Hackenberg is a chance to develop another young pivot alongside Nate Sudfeld, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero added, and it isn't a reflection on the health of Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Wentz is still working his way back from a season-ending knee injury, while Foles has recently been dealing with back issues.
The Jets used a second-round pick to select the former Penn State standout in 2016, but he failed to log even a single regular-season snap with the team. He was traded in June to the Oakland Raiders, then subsequently released less than a month later.
