Hack is back, for better or for worse. Christian Hackenberg's debut in the AAF has gone about as well as his career in the NFL went: terribly.
Hackenberg has not had it easy in this game and he's clearly getting frustrated, storming off the field after his errant pass. Unfortunately, the camera picked up the sound of him dropping some F-bombs on his way, followed by a very loud "God Damnit!" for which the commentators were quick to apologize for.
The New York Jets selected Hackenberg in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The former Penn State standout failed to develop on the Jets, and as a result is now suiting up in the AAF.

Hackenberg failed to log even a single snap in the NFL but he's getting the chance to turn his career around in the AAF. He'll need to rebound in a big way on Sunday to turn his comeback story around and get off to a positive new beginning.
