Quarterback Christian Hackenberg visited the New England Patriots on Thursday, according to ESPN.

Hackenberg is looking for a new employer after he was placed on waivers Tuesday by the Oakland Raiders. No team put in a claim on Hackenberg during the 24-hour period.

A former second-round draft pick of the New York Jets in 2016, Hackenberg was traded to the Raiders last month for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Hackenberg, who has yet to throw a pass in his two-year NFL career, lasted only three weeks in Oakland before he was cut loose. The Raiders retained the draft pick since Hackenberg did not make the team.

New England used a seventh-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft to select quarterback Danny Etling out of LSU.
