Christian Hackenberg is unclaimed, unwanted and, possibly, done for good.
Just a few weeks after the Jets officially gave up on the former second-round pick, trading him to Oakland for a conditional seventh-rounder, the Raiders cut bait Wednesday. Now, Hackenberg has moved through waivers unclaimed. The only notable thing he did in with the silver and black was throw a pick-six during OTAs.
Oakland moved on from Hackenberg so early that it won’t even have to give up the conditional pick. Coach Jon Gruden had loved Hackenberg before the draft, and even he appears to have soured on him.
Hackenberg has yet to throw a regular-season pass. Any team can acquire the Penn State product now, but whether anyone will take a look at someone who couldn’t so much as get on the field in two years with the Jets remains to be seen.
