The official Twitter account of the New York Jets tweeted the news from head coach Todd Bowles that QB Christian Hackenberg was dealt to the Oakland Raiders for a 2019 conditional seventh-round draft pick.
The Jets' QB depth chart has had quite the overhaul from last year. Incumbent starter Josh McCown remains, while the team added Teddy Bridgewater via free agency and Sam Darnold via the draft; they released Bryce Petty earlier this offseason and have now dealt Hackenberg.
No matter how much new Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has praised Hackenberg in the past, it's unlikely this trade will turn into a positive for the Raiders or Hackenberg. He goes from one muddied QB depth chart to the next, where he'll likely begin his new Raiders journey as the team's fourth-string quarterback behind Derek Carr, E.J. Manuel, and Connor Cook.
