Joselio Hanson DB OAK 5 Months

Free agent CB Joselio Hanson worked out for the Bears.

We haven't heard much from Hanson since he was released by the Raiders at final cuts. The Bears are looking for depth after Charles Tillman (triceps) was lost to short-term injured reserve Tuesday. Hanson is a 32-year-old slot corner.

Raiders released CB Joselio Hanson, OT Tony Hills and LB Omar Gaither.

Hanson's release comes with an injury settlement. "Released by the worst team in the league" is a position no player in the league wants to find themselves in, but that's where Hanson, Hills and Gaither are. A highly-experienced slot corner, Hanson could draw some interest once he gets healthy. He graded out positively in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season.

Raiders placed CB Joselio Hanson on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.

Hanson was getting torched in the preseason, and wasn't going to make the team. The veteran slot corner should be released with an injury settlement once he's back to 100 percent. Hanson was decent in 571 snaps last season, so he should get another chance once he's back to full health despite the rough summer.

Raiders signed CB Joselio Hanson.

One of the biggest names released at final cuts, it took Hanson all of three days to find a new job. A slot corner who's appeared in at least 15 games five times in the past six seasons, Hanson will help settle the Raiders' shaky secondary, though he won't be of assistance on the outside. Oakland is entering Week 1 with some combination of Ron Bartell, Demarcus Van Dyke and Shawntae Spencer manning left and right corner. Hanson has just four career picks.

Free agent CB Joselio Hanson has scheduled a visit with the Raiders.

It's Hanson's first known visit since getting cut loose by the Eagles on Friday. The Raiders have one of the league's more up-in-the-air secondaries, so it's quite possible Hanson won't escape Oakland without a contract.

Eagles released CB Joselio Hanson.

Hanson, who doesn't play special teams, got beat out by fourth-round rookie Brandon Boykin for the nickel corner job. He'll latch on elsewhere as an inside corner with 104 games of NFL experience.

Coach Andy Reid said that Joselio Hanson remains the front-runner for the slot corner job.

It's a job Hanson has held for several years. He'll have to stay in front of impressive fourth-round rookie Brandon Boykin to ensure a roster spot.

The Eagles have informed Joselio Hanson that he will have to beat out rookie Brandon Boykin for the team's slot corner job.

Hanson's roster spot may also hang in the balance because he doesn't help in other areas and is owed an $825K salary, more than twice as much as Boykin. In all likelihood, Boykin will be eased in on special teams while Hanson opens the season as the Eagles' top slot corner. Boykin should take over by 2013.

Eagles re-signed CB Joselio Hanson to a two-year contract.

The Eagles released Hanson on Saturday thanks to the $7.6 million that was left over the final three years of his contract. Surprisingly, no one made a strong play on the capable nickel corner despite interest. So now the Eagles get Hanson back at a discounted rate. He'll slide right into his old No. 4 corner spot.
