Chad Hansen: Inks futures deal with Houston

Chad Hansen: Cut by Houston

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

Analysis: 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.

Chad Hansen: Claimed by Houston

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

Analysis: 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

The Saints waived Hansen on Thursday.

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

Chad Hansen: Headed to Big Easy

Hansen signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday.

Analysis: The former forth-round pick in 2017 played in 15 games with one starts and posted nine receptions for 94 yards for the Jets in his career. With NFL experience -- 342 offensive snaps in his career -- Hansen will hope to latch onto the roster in a depth receiver role.

Chad Hansen: Waived by Broncos

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

Analysis: Hansen's release -- along with the release of quarterback Garrett Grayson -- was likely 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 stops in New England and Tennessee as the most recent. As the offseason rolls on we should find out more about Hansen's future in the NFL.

Chad Hansen: Let go from practice squad

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

Analysis: 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

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

Analysis: 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.

Chad Hansen: Claimed by Pats

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

Analysis: 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

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

Analysis: 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.

Chad Hansen: Quiet halfway through preseason

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

Analysis: 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.
