Christian Hackenberg's Raiders had a short lived spell, but new Oakland coach Jon Gruden makes quarterback no guilt.
He believes that the current collective bargaining agreement played an important role
On Thursday, Gruden revealed that the NFL's rules did not allow Hackenberg to show the team over Mike Sando of ESPN.com what he did
"Everyone is an expert out there on Hackenberg and thinks he can not play n. It is unfortunate, this whole collective [bargaining agreement]. How do you develop a quarterback? I do not know how you do that.
"It's hard enough to give Connor Cook enough repetitions, let alone a fourth man, it really depresses me that we have not got more time can spend with these young quarterbacks, and it will be really an effective situation for the NFL in the future. "
Oakland acquired Hackenberg from the New York Jets in late May in exchange for a conditional 7th graders selection Although he was in the NFL Draft 2016 with the 51er total spectrum occupied, he never saw the field for the jets. 19659004] This was also the case in Oakland: the team renounced on the third quarterback Tuesday.
Last month it was reported that Hackenberg 19659011] revised his throwing motion (quarterback guru Jeff Christensen said he had to "start from scratch," according to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com), Hoping to put his career on the right track, Josh McCown and added Teddy Bridgewater in free agency and Sam Darnold in the draft.
Th The former Penn State passerby was dispensable. But with Derek Carr starring in Oakland and Connor Cook and EJ Manuel delivering decent depth, Hackenberg froze a tough fight for the team, especially given the fact that he changed his throwing motion.
"[Hackenberg] worked. I change his stroke, his pass motion, and I think he did that," Gruden said of Sando. "We just did not have enough repetitions to see him well. Since we were on the road with some of our other guys, we had no room. "
Time-and the CBA-worked against Hackenberg
ESPN.com's Field Yates reported Thursday that Hackenberg had a visit to the New England Patriots, and now that Jacoby Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo are gone, veteran Brian Hoyer and rookie Danny Etling are the only passers-by on the depth chart behind 40-year-old Tom Brady.
