According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, the Jets' quarterback gap "isn't as wide as we thought." Per Cimini, Christian Hackenberg has performed "a little better than expected" while Josh McCown "wasn't quite as sharp as anticipated" at the team's offseason practices. McCown is still in the driver's seat to start Week 1 but Cimini wouldn't characterize his lead as "insurmountable." Through minicamp, Bryce Petty finds himself a distant third on the team's QB depth chart.

NJ.com reports Christian Hackenberg appeared "improved" in OTAs, but "still doesn't look good." Per reporter Connor Hughes, Hackenberg's footwork was improved on his calamitous rookie year, but he still missed "far too many passes against air." Highlighting Hack's inaccuracy, Hughes reports "in the three media-open OTAs, Hackenberg hit reporters with passes twice." Unfathomable. The Jets' selection of Hackenberg at No. 51 overall in 2016 seemed like a wasted pick from the second it was made. Nothing in the ensuing 13 months has changed that perception.

Jets OC John Morton said each quarterback will get equal reps with the first-team during OTAs. That was not the case on the first day of OTAs when Christian Hackenberg worked exclusively on the second field with Josh McCown working with the first-team and Bryce Petty switching between the two. Hackenberg will certainly get his chance at some point, however, and Morton said all three have a "great opportunity."

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini spoke to a scout who was "taken aback" by how many "off-target" passes Christian Hackenberg threw in pregame warmups last season. Hackenberg didn't see the field as a rookie, telling given his second-round draft status and the miserable play of Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty. The Jets are having an open competition at quarterback, but Hackenberg is a long shot to overtake Josh McCown and Petty. New York's decision to draft Hackenberg 51st overall was one of the worst picks in recent memory.

ESPN's Rich Cimini spoke to a scout who was "taken aback" by how many "off-target" passes Christian Hackenberg threw in pregame warmups last season. That's right. Hackenberg, the 51st overall selection in the 2016 draft, couldn't even throw an accurate pass in warmups last year. Hackenberg didn't see the field at all as a rookie, which was rather astounding given the miserable play of Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty. The Jets are having an open competition at quarterback this summer but Hackenberg is a long shot to overtake Josh McCown and Petty for the starting job. New York's decision to draft Hackenberg in the second round was one of the worst picks in recent memory.

Christian Hackenberg said he is "more comfortable" heading into his second season. "Without a doubt, I think there’s a different level of confidence," Hackenberg said. "More comfortable in the situation, more comfortable walking in the building, more comfortable with the guys in the locker room, in the huddle." Hackenberg added he is not focusing on the competition for the starting job but rather the things he "can control." Josh McCown looks like the favorite to start right now, but the safe money is on Hackenberg seeing the field at some point in 2017.
