The wide receiver corps of the New York Jets promises to be a competitive one heading into training camp. Chad Hansen, so far, has impressed during the start of organized team activities.

When it comes to the New York Jets, their wide receiver corps looks to not only be a competitive one but likely a strength on offense. It’s no secret that last season, the Jets offense needed some work as they were unable to keep those chains moving or score touchdowns consistently.

Luckily, time heals all and a lot of players continue to develop as the seasons go by. Wide receiver Chad Hansen didn’t make much of an impact last season as a rookie since his transition into the NFL hasn’t been an easy one.

In 2017, Hansen only totaled 94 receiving yards, nine receptions, and failed to score a single touchdown. For the most part, Hansen was buried on the depth chart last season but this time around is expected to hopefully show more and earn playing time this upcoming season.

In an article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he wrote about the top OTA stars that stood out for him in the one practice that was open to the media. He confirmed that Hansen looked faster than last year and at the rate he’s going, will likely make the Jets receiving corps that much better.

There is a lot of uncertainty at wide receiver for the Jets since there is no guarantee that Quincy Enunwa will return to form or if the NFL will end up suspending Robby Anderson for his off-the-field issues. This could potentially open up opportunities for other players in the positional group which bodes well for Hansen to show his potential with increased reps.

Hopefully, the Jets get to see what made Hansen famous in college. In his final season in the University of California in 2016, Hansen totaled 1,249 receiving yards, 92 receptions, and 11 touchdowns.
