The Philadelphia Eagles have signed quarterback Christian Hackenberg.

Hackenberg was selected in the second round of the NFL draft by the New York Jets in 2016 but didn’t play in a game. He was traded to Oakland in May for a conditional 2019 draft pick and was released two weeks later.

3DownNation insider Justin Dunk reported the 23-year-old was added to the Edmonton Eskimos negotiation list in June.

The Eagles have plenty of quarterbacks but Hackenberg gives them another arm in camp while Carson Wentz continues his recovery following surgery to repair two torn knee ligaments. Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles missed practices last week but returned Saturday. Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan took the snaps in the preseason opener.

Hackenberg starred at Penn State but his NFL career has been disappointing so far.
