NFL free agency news: Eagles sign former Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg

The Eagles are adding a quarterback.

Philadelphia has signed former Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the team announced Sunday. The Raiders waived the 23-year-old in mid-June.

The Jets selected Hackenberg, a three-year starter at Penn State, in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. But, Hackenberg never played in a regular-season game for New York before he was sent to Oakland in exchange for a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick this offseason.

Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in mid-December while backup Nick Foles has been dealing with muscle spasms.

The Eagles will play the Patriots in their second preseason game Thursday. They’ll face the Falcons in Week 1 action Sept. 6.
