Casey Hayward Jr.
CB - LV
The Las Vegas Raiders agreed to a deal with free agent defensive back Casey Hayward.
Hayward reunites with Gus Bradley, who was his defensive coordinator with the Chargers. He is looking to bounce back after a somewhat disappointing 2020 season where he did not play 16 games for the first time since 2013. This appears to be a low risk/high reward type of situation for both sides in this deal.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Chargers have released veteran CB Casey Hayward.
The release of Hayward has cleared up approximately $9.75M in cap space for the Chargers. Hayward will turn 32 in September and it is likely the Chargers want to get younger at the position while saving costs. Given the experience of Hayward he should have plenty of suitors come the start of free agency.
Chargers CB Casey Hayward (groin) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Bills.
Melvin Ingram (knee) has also been ruled out. These are tough losses as the team travels to Buffalo to take on a rested Bills team.
The San Diego Chargers and CB Casey Hayward agreed to terms on a three-year, $15.3 million deal according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Casey Hayward is a proven durable corner that is heading to San Diego and will likely start on a Chargers defense that finished 2015 ranked 14th against the pass. Despite missing 13 games in 2013, Hayward started his past 32 contests over a two-year span. Hayward finished last season with 65 tackles, and seven passes defended.
