Quarterback Christian Hackenberg, a Penn State star who never played a game in two seasons with the New York Jets, was traded yesterday to the Oakland Raiders. The Jets will receive a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick for Hackenberg, who will be remembered as one of the biggest second-round disappointments in recent NFL history. The trade came hours after Hackenberg made critical comments about the coaching staff to reporters. He said the past two seasons were “frustrating” because he didn’t “get any information from anybody on how to fix” mechanical flaws in his throwing motion.
The purpose of journalism, and in this case any Philly digital site, is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”
