Christian Hackenberg has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles contend the signing has nothing to do with the health status of Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. Wentz is coming back from a torn ACL and LCL, while Foles is dealing with neck spasms.
Hackenberg, the former second-round pick out of Penn State, was unable to beat out his competition in two seasons with the New York Jets. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders in May for a conditional seventh-round pick. The Raiders waived him in June, however, negating the trade.
