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.
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 look to compete for a depth role elsewhere in the league.
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.
Hansen continues to impress at camp, Connor Hughes of SNYtv reports.
Media personnel covering the Jets have been heaping praise on Hansen ever since the start of OTAs. This time, Hughes highlighted a play during which Hansen beat star cornerback acquisition Trumaine Johnson on a comeback route. While the second-year man out of Cal has no shortage of competition in a deep wide receiver corps, he could work his way into the mainstream fantasy conversation with a strong preseason and has already pulled away from ArDarius Stewart, who was drafted one round earlier in 2017.
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.
