From the 2nd round to a 2nd job….
Such are the travails of Christian Hackenberg.
After being drafted in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, Hackenberg never saw the field. Literally, he wasn’t ALLOWED to look at the field. And then, the improbable happened. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders for a 2019 conditional draft pick. The condition being he remained on the Raiders’ roster for a certain amount of time.
I can’t imagine three weeks was long enough….
It wasn’t. The Jets won’t receive draft compensation for Hackenberg. They’ll receive nothing — and like it. As for Hackenberg, he’s home, beefing up his resume. Good luck my friend.
As for someone who actually knows how to throw a football, Andrew Luck is BACK!! He attended Minicamp for the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday. Everyone watched in amazement, as he threw a football….FIVE YARDS.
Luck is recovering from a January 2017 shoulder surgery. He missed all of last year due to setbacks in the rehabilitation process. Luck promised fans he would be on the field for Week 1 of the 2018 NFL season.
I CAN’T WAIT FOR FOOTBALL TO START!!
