The Jets have traded QB Christian Hackenberg to the Raiders for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2019, head coach Todd Bowles announced on Tuesday.
"We did everything we could," Bowles said about working with Hackenberg. "Sometimes it just doesn't work out."
Bowles added that Hackenberg was held out of OTAs on purpose on Tuesday in case a deal involving him was reached.
Hackenberg seemed to indicate that he did not feel as if the Jets did not do enough to guide him in his development.
"I think there were some times where I threw it really good during my first two years here, so the frustrating part for me was the ups and downs and not knowing why and not getting any information from anybody on how to fix or how to adjust it," he said.
Hackenberg had been lost in the shuffle in the Jets' QB logjam, with Josh McCown, Sam Darnold, and Teddy Bridgewater ahead of him on the depth chart.
The 23-year-old Hackenberg, who the Jets selected in the second round (51st overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft, never appeared in a regular season game for the Jets.
He is the second quarterback to be let go this offseason, with Bryce Petty having been cut earlier this month.
