Card: Panini Contenders 2017
Acquired: 2017, Box Breaker
Chad Hansen was a late bloomer and a very surprising prospect from the 2017 NFL Draft. He played for Idaho St for one year before joining Cal. With the Golden Bears his numbers increased every season culminating in his Senior year, when he posted 92 receptions for 1,249 and 11 scores. Scouts loved Hansen and felt that he was going to sneak up draft boards. Chad managed to climb into the 4th round where he was selected by the New York Jets. He worked his way onto the field during the final few games of 2017, recording his first 3 receptions against the Bucs. Chad finished 2017 with 9 receptions for 94 yards and a 24 yard long.
He’d be claimed off of waivers by the Patriots, and then later spend time on the practice squad of the Titans. Currently he’s on the practice squad of the Denver Broncos.
