Hansen signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday. The former forth-round pick in 2017 played in 15 games with one start and posted nine receptions for 94 yards for the Jets in his career. With NFL experience -- 342 offensive snaps -- Hansen will hope to latch onto the roster in a depth receiver role.
Hansen was waived by Denver on Thursday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports. Hansen's release -- along that of quarterback Garrett Grayson -- was presumably motivated by the 17 undrafted free agents the Broncos signed on Thursday. The Cal product has bounced around since logging 342 offensive snaps for the Jets in 2017, with New England and Tennessee representing his most recent stops.
Hansen was released from the Titans' practice squad Monday, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports. The move opened a spot for the Titans to re-sign Devin Ross. Hansen played 15 games for the Jets last season, making nine catches for 94 yards.
The Patriots claimed Hansen off waivers Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports. A fourth-round pick in last year's draft, Hansen caught just nine passes in 15 games as a rookie and was waived by the Jets on Saturday. The Patriots scooped him up -- along with Amara Darboh -- hoping to find some decent filler material for the bottom of their shaky wideout depth chart. Darboh and Hansen are both candidates for the No. 4 receiver job while Julian Edelman serves a four-game suspension to begin the regular season.
Hansen was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. A fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft, Hansen caught nine of 17 targets for 94 yards during his rookie season. The Jets likely will place him on the practice squad if he makes it through waivers unclaimed.
