Chad Hansen saw extensive playing time for the Jets in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. The rookie receiver saw 35 total offensive snaps, which means he was on the field for 70% of Jets plays.
Hansen was unable to make much of his playing time. The fourth round pick did not record a single reception.
Hansen’s playing time is something worth watching as we get deeper into the season. Was this a one time deal? The Jets have varied in their personnel packages from game to game. Perhaps they wanted to force the Broncos to put extra defensive backs on the field? Was this a sign the coaching staff feels good about Hansen and wants to see what he can do with more playing time? Will the results of this game impact the plan going forward? We will have to wait to find out the answers to these questions.
The full snap totals for the Jets on offense are below.
