Matt Lombardo from reports Christian Hackenberg is once again looking for an NFL home:

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero confirms the news Friday afternoon as well:

Hackenberg has not taken a regular-season NFL snap. The New York Jets drafted him in the second round in the 2016 NFL draft. The Jets then traded him to the Oakland Raiders for a seventh-round pick this spring before being cut in June.

The Eagles then signed him three weeks ago. He completed seven of 16 passes for 69 yards and two interceptions Thursday against his former team – the New York Jets.
