Oakland Raiders reportedly cut ties with former Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg
Former Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg’s tenure in Oakland didn’t last very long.
After the New York Jets traded him to the Raiders earlier this offseason, the ex-Nittany Lion is apparently a free agent for the first time.
ESPN NFL insider Field Yates broke the news on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, as you can see below:

Hackenberg was a second-round pick of the Jets back in 2016, but never lived up to expectations. Despite New York’s struggles at the quarterback position, Hackenberg never saw the field during a regular-season game.
The good news is that Hackenberg still has some time before the start of the 2018 preseason, so there’s a chance he can find a new team before then. However, the clock is ticking on his NFL career.
