Former Jets QB Christian Hackenberg Fizzles in Profanity-Laden AAF Debut
Former NFL quarterback Christian Hackenberg made his first Alliance of American Football appearance Sunday, struggling in a profanity-laden debut.
Hackenberg started for the Memphis Express and his team lost to the Birmingham Iron, 26-0. He went 10–for–23 with 87 yards and one interception.
The 23-year-old Hackenberg also forgot he was mic'd up during the game, offering a selection of profanities.
Be warned, this contains expletives.
He was replaced by backup quarterback Brandon Silvers with a just over four minutes to play, and Silvers threw an interception on his first drive.
Hackenberg was a second-round pick by the Jets out of Penn State in the 2016 NFL draft. He didn’t play in an NFL regular season game.
