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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hansen caught both of his targets for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Lions.
Hansen easily saw the most reps amongst the Jets' receiving corps Saturday, so it's clear that New York management wants to see what they have in the first-year Cal product. Notably, both he and fellow rookie ArDarius Stewart vastly out-snapped Charone Peake, who was only on the field for two plays and seems to be falling out of favor with the team. Thus, it seems Hansen is moving up the depth chart. and he could therefore be in store for another large workload in the third preseason game Saturday against the Giants.
Hansen (knee) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans.
Although Hansen was slowed by a knee injury during the early goings of training camp, his participation Saturday would suggest that's no longer an issue. The rookie should be in line to see a respectable amount of playing time but likely won't rotate in until Robby Anderson, Jalin Marshall (suspension), Charone Peake and ArDarius Stewart have gotten theirs.
Hansen (knee) participated in team drills at Tuesday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Beginning in late May, Hansen missed the offseason program due first to a hamstring concern and then knee soreness. He proceeded to miss the first few practices of training camp, making his appearance Tuesday his first with the Jets. While he hauled in a pass during his time on he field, he was also wearing a brace on his sprained knee. As a result, his health will be worth watching as camp and the preseason proceed.
Hansen (knee) has been unable to practice fully during the early parts of training camp, NorthJersey.com reports.
Hansen will not be cleared to practice fully until he's completely recovered from his injury, which is a tough spot given the Jets need to see if he can be a viable option right away. With ArDarius Stewart (groin/thumb) also unable to fully participate, the Jets' already weak wide receiver depth chart will only get weaker.
Hansen (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp.
Hansen, who was held out of OTAs due to a hamstring issue, is missing out on this week's mandatory minicamp due to soreness in his knee. However, his absence sounds like more of a precautionary than anything. Look for him to be back to normal by training camp.
Hansen was held out of practice Tuesday due to a hamstring issue.
The specifics of the injury remain unknown for the fourth-round selection. Hansen was joined by fellow rookie ArDarius Stewart (thumb) on the sidelines, a disappointing beginning to OTAs for the Jets. However, neither of these injuries appears to be anything major and shouldn't impact the rookies' availability in the regular season. Look for more updates to come throughout the preseason as Hansen competes for a spot on the depth chart.
