Chad Hansen: Moves to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen (undisclosed) signed to the Texans' practice squad on Sunday after having been waived during roster cuts, Tadd Haislop of reports.

Hansen suffered an undisclosed injury during a scrimmage late August, but he looks to have put the issue behind him. The 25-year-old hasn't suited up for regular-season action since appearing in 15 games with the Jets in 2017.

Texans' Chad Hansen: Suffers injury during scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen (undisclosed) suffered an injury during the Texans' scrimmage Thursday.

Head coach Bill O'Brien didn't offer much in the way of an update on Hansen's status but said he will have more information on the injury tomorrow. The wideout took a hard hit from cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr. Hansen is competing for a reserve and special-teams role after bouncing around the league the past couple of years.

Texans' Chad Hansen: Inks futures deal with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen signed a reserve/future contract with the Texans on Monday.

Hansen joined Houston at the start of training camp but was unable to survive season-opening roster cuts. The 24-year-old will now have a full offseason with the Texans to make an impression.

Chad Hansen: Cut by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans waived Hansen on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Hansen originally signed with Houston at the start of training camp. The 24-year-old bounced around prior to that, signing contracts with the Saints, Broncos and Patriots. Hansen didn't see any regular-season action in 2018 after appearing in 15 games for the Jets in the 2017 season, logging 342 snaps on offense and catching nine passes for 94 yards on 17 targets.

Texans' Chad Hansen: Claimed by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans claimed Hansen off waivers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Houston becomes the sixth NFL team to take a shot on Hansen, who was originally drafted by the Jets in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. After a disappointing rookie season, the 6-foot-2, 202-pound wideout had brief stays with New England, Denver, Tennessee and New Orleans. He's one of 13 receivers in camp, so the 24-year-old faces a challenge to stick with the Texans.

Chad Hansen: Let go by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints waived Hansen on Thursday.

Hansen played 15 games for the Jets in 2017, recording nine catches for 94 yards, but he hasn't suited up for NFL action since. The 2017 fourth-round pick will work to catch on in a depth role elsewhere.

Saints' Chad Hansen: Headed to Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Broncos' Chad Hansen: Waived by Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen was waived by Denver on Thursday, Zac Stevens of 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.

Chad Hansen: Let go from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen was released from the Titans' practice squad Monday, Terry McCormick of 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.

Chad Hansen: Waived by New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen was waived by the Patriots on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Hansen was unable to stick in a depleted Patrots' receiver room. The 2017 fourth-rounder will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers, and he'll look to compete for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Chad Hansen: Claimed by Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots claimed Hansen off waivers Sunday, Albert Breer of 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.

Chad Hansen: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Rich Cimini of 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.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Quiet halfway through preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen caught one of two targets for no gain in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.

Hansen was getting rave reviews in camp, but he's yet to pick up a single yard through two preseason contests. He's going to have to turn on the proverbial jets if he wants to stick with the Jets this coming season.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Gaining momentum in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen has impressed the Jets' brass during the team's offseason program, Connor Hughes of The Athletic New York reports.

After a strong showing in OTAs, Hansen turned heads again during Tuesday's minicamp practice, with Hughes specifically praising the second-year wideout for beating cornerback Trumaine Johnson on a comeback route at one point during the session. While Hansen faces no shortage of competition in a deep wide-receiver corps, he could work his way into the mainstream fantasy conversation with a strong preseason. At the very least, he has already seemed to gain separation on the depth chart from ArDarius Stewart, who was drafted one round earlier in 2017.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Turning heads in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen has been one of New York's biggest stars thus far in OTAs, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

The 2017 fourth-rounder didn't move the needle much as a rookie, but Cimini believes Hansen is playing much faster than a year ago and has shown legitimate improvement. Hansen and 2017 third-round selection ArDarius Stewart are currently buried on the wide receiver depth chart below Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, Terrelle Pryor and Jermaine Kearse, but a potential Anderson suspension for off-the-field issues could open the door for Hansen if he can earn some snaps with a strong preseason showing.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Disappoints in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen caught nine of 17 targets for 94 yards during the 2017 season.

Hansen and fellow rookie wideout ArDarius Stewart had disappointing rookie seasons despite being selected in the third and fourth rounds of last year's draft, respectively. There will surely be higher expectations in 2018, though it's tough to see Hansen fully breaking out after his rookie struggles. The Jets could bring in some veteran wideouts this offseason, though the biggest question will be who's under center.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Catches three passes in loss to Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen caught all three of his targets for 21 yards Sunday against the Saints.

Impressively, Hansen caught a 24-yard pass, which meant both of his others combined for minus-three yards. Either way, the Jets' passing game isn't nearly as good with Bryce Petty under center, and it's tough to see Hansen making any meaningful fantasy contribution in the final two games of the season.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Targeted once Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Panthers.

Hansen played 28 of 70 offensive snaps Sunday and was the clear No. 3 receiver for the Jets. Receivers Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse -- along with tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins -- were the only players with multiple targets. The Jets passing game isn't diverse enough in its current form for Hansen to be a viable or consistent fantasy option.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Catches first NFL passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hansen caught three of four targets for 33 yards during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Head coach Todd Bowles said last week that Hansen should get more reps in light of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, and that certainly came to fruition Sunday as Hansen caught the first passes of his career. It's certainly a step in the right direction, but with a number of pass catchers ahead of him on the depth chart, not to mention the running back and tight end options, his fantasy upside is fairly limited.

Jets' Chad Hansen: Could see bigger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Todd Bowles said Monday that Hansen will see an increased role in the wake of Jeremy Kerley's four-game suspension, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

A 2017 fourth-round pick, Hansen has yet to make his presence felt on offense. While he's likely to be more of a depth receiver over the next four games, Hansen will be an injury away from being thrown into the fire.
