The Raiders on Tuesday waived ex- Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg, according to the NFL ‘s transaction wire, as NFL Network reported.
If Jackson continues to play at this level, he’s due for Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. And a lot of money.
Any quarterback taken first overall in the draft is expected to be the face of his franchise. No matter if Baker Mayfield or Tyrod Taylor starts the 2018 season, Mayfield is the future of the team.
Mayfield broke the FBS’ passing efficiency record with a 196.39 season in 2016, just to break it again a year later with a 198.90 effort in 2017. The Power Five’s other top seasons ever in passing efficiency were posted by Russell Wilson, Robert Griffin III, Jameis Winston, Cam Newton and Marcus Mariota.
It will come 32 years after the U.S. first hosted the 1994 World Cup, an event which kicked off the popularity of the sport in America. It will also be played during the 250th anniversary celebrations of the country, founded in 1776. Mexico will host games for a record third time, after the 1970 and 1986 editions.
The 2026 tournament will be the first to have 48 teams. The current format has 32 teams, split into eight groups of four, with the top two teams in each group progressing to the round-of-16 knockout stage. It will be the same for the 2022 tournament in Qatar.
Starting in 2026, there will be 16 groups of three teams, with the top two teams in the group advancing into the expanded round-of-32 knockout stages. The finalists will still play seven games.
The new format will increase the amount of games at the tournament from 64 to 80. Mexico and Canada will each host 10 games, while America will get 60. All games from the quarterfinal round onto the final will be played in the USA.
