Saints Sign WR Chad Hansen, Place LB Chase Hansen On NFI List


The New Orleans Saints officially signed WR Chad Hansen to a contract on Tuesday and placed LB Chase Hansen on the non-football injury list.

  • The Saints also waived DB David Simmons.

Chad Hansen, 24, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets back in 2017. He was entering the second year of his four-year rookie contract worth $2,819,648 when the Jets elected to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.

The Patriots claimed him off of waivers shortly after but elected to waive him in October. Hansen had a brief stint on the Titans’ practice squad before the Broncos added him to their taxi squad.

Denver re-signed Hansen to a futures contract this past January only to cut him loose shortly after this year’s draft. 

In 2017, Hansen appeared in 15 games for the Jets and recorded nine receptions for 94 yards (10.4 YPC) and no touchdowns.
