New York Jets wide receiver Chad Hansen hasn’t made much noise during training camp but there is no need to worry just yet.

During New York Jets organized team activities and mandatory minicamp, wide receiver Chad Hansen was the talk of it all. He was catching everything coming his way and showcased his speed and solid route-running.

Hansen made quite the name for himself during that time but so far during Jets training camp, hasn’t made any headlines for continuing that momentum. Due to the crowded situation at wide receiver, Hansen has been once again buried on the Jets depth chart.

Even though he might not be blazing it up like he was just a few months ago, don’t sleep on Hansen and everything he brings to the table. The true test for Hansen as well as any other players on the Jets that want to get their name out there will all come from preseason action.

Ideally, Hansen should see a lot of reps coming his way from here on out in preseason football since it’s unlikely the Jets will play their main wide receivers. It’s expected that players like Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse will likely get a series or two per game.

Others in the positional group and especially those at the bottom of the depth chart will see a plethora of preseason action. This is where Hansen should be able to once again shine and prove that he can indeed be a key offensive weapon.

Hansen has the skill-set to continue developing into a solid player and even though he’s fizzled out a bit during Jets training camp, is still working hard for when his number is eventually called. He’s been working hard all offseason long preparing for his sophomore season with the Jets and will make the most out of reps coming his way this preseason.
