Hance, listed at 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds, went undrafted out of Northwestern in 2019. He originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills.
After being let go by Buffalo, he spent training camp for the 2019 season with Washington. He was eventually waived by Washington and then signed to the Jaguars’ practice squad for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. He also spent time on the New York Jets’ practice squad in 2020.
