Patriots Hosting QB Christian Hackenberg For Visit


Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots are hosting free agent QB Christian Hackenberg for a visit on Thursday.

This comes just a day after Hackenberg passed through waivers unclaimed.

As of now, the Patriots have Tom Brady, Brian Hoyer andDanny Etling at quarterback, but it’s possible they could add another option for training camp.

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 on Tuesday.

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.

Hackenberg has yet to appear in an NFL game.
