Breaking: Jets trade Christian Hackenberg to Oakland

The Jets held Christian Hackenberg out of practice during today's first OTA session on the field. Now we know why:

Basically, they're giving him away for nothing to a team that has some interest in getting a look at him. They'll presumably only receive the pick if Hackenberg develops into a contributor and sees time with the Raiders next year.

In other news from day one:

  • Quarterback Sam Darnold had some struggles, including a couple of interceptions, but - as you'll know if you read our in-depth scouting report yesterday - we've been anticipating some growing pains from him;
  • Ahead of Darnold, Josh McCown predictably got the most reps, but the better news was that Teddy Bridgewater was also a full-go and didn't seem physically limited;
  • Bucky Hodges was reportedly not in attendance;
  • Players getting first team reps included Jonotthan Harrison, Anthony Wint, Nathan Shepherd and Henry Anderson;
  • Players singled out for praise by the media included Leonard Williams, Chad Hansen, Kevin Pierre-Louis and Trumaine Johnson; and
  • Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor wasn't present as reports indicated he's re-injured his ankle. Hopefully he'll be ready by training camp.
