Chad Hansen is up next in our Jets roster countdown.

Name: Chad Hansen

Number: 16

Year with Jets: 2nd

Projected Role: Deep on the receiver depth chart

His 2017: Hansen only had 9 catches for 94 yards as a rookie despite his playing time increasing as the season progressed, and Jeremy Kerley departed.

2018 will be a success if: Hansen can make the roster and become a contributor. After a strong offseason program, that felt like a distinct possibility. Things are looking bleaker by the day in that front. Hansen is in danger of being left out in the cold due to how crowded the Jets receiver room is.

Odds of making the roster: I will say the same thing I said about ArDarius Stewart. I think if Hansen makes the team, it will be due to his Draft pedigree. That can be a factor, but there are just too many other options to feel good about his odds. Unlikely (25-50%)
