Christian Hackenberg is getting another opportunity in the NFL this summer. It isn't going very well.

Hackenberg was a second-round pick of the New York Jets in 2016 but didn't appear in a game in two seasons. The Jets traded him to the Oakland Raiders, who cut him. Now, he's in camp with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Hackenberg's start with the Eagles has been less than auspicious. His first two passes in practice today were intercepted.

According to Bleeding Green's Brandon Lee Gowton, Hackenberg didn't exactly do much with his next opportunity this morning.

Carson Wentz is entrenched as the Eagles' starter, provided he is 100 percent healthy. Playoff hero Nick Foles is the backup, and the team likes third-stringer Nate Sudfeld.

There really isn't much room for Hackenberg to begin with, and his stint in Philly could be especially short if he keeps doing what he's doing.
