Eagles Waive QB Christian Hackenberg


Matt Lombardo reports that the Eagles have placed QB Christian Hackenberg on waivers Friday.

Hackenberg, 23, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in 2016. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $4.7 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.08 million for the 2018 season.

The Jets traded Hackenberg to the Raiders last month for a conditional seventh-round pick. However, Oakland waived him a few months ago and he later signed on with the Eagles for the preseason.

During his three-year college career at Penn State, Hackenberg threw for 8,457 yards while completing 56.1 percent of his passes to go along with 48 touchdowns and 31 interceptions.
