Chargers, CB Casey Hayward agree to three-year deal
Cornerback Casey Hayward has agreed to a three-year deal with the Chargers, the team announced on Sunday. The deal is worth a reported $15.3 million, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Hayward, a second-round pick of the Packers in 2012, spent the first four years of his career in Green Bay. After a strong rookie season, Hayward was plagued by injuries in 2013 and 2014 before returning to form in 2015. The 28-year-old played a team-high 88.1 percent of defensive snaps last year, and split time at slot outside cornerback.
He’ll likely replace free-agent corner Patrick Robinson in San Diego, opposite Brandon Flowers.
