Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but TheSidelineView.com reported that Hanson's base salary was $825,000 with the Eagles with the potential of earning another $300,000 in incentives.

Hansen had 239 tackles, 2.5 sacks and four interceptions with the Eagles while playing mostly in nickel packages.
