This comes as something of a surprise to the media and fans. In Bleeding Green Nation's most recent 53-man roster projection for the Eagles, Hanson was a consensus pick to make the cut.
Hanson played in all 16 games for the Eagles last season, and has played in 93 since 2006. During that time he's racked up four interceptions and 2.5 sacks.
The undrafted defensive back began his career in San Francisco, but played in only 13 games with them before eventually signing with Philadelphia.
