Chargers Agree to Terms with Free Agent CB Casey Hayward

The Chargers have agreed to terms with former Packers cornerback Casey Hayward on a three-year, $15.3 million contract according to Rand Getlin of NFL Network.

Hayward was widely considered the best cornerback left on the free agent market and should have a good shot at starting corner duties for the Chargers after working primarily as a slot corner in Green Bay the past four seasons.

Originally a second-round pick out of Vanderbilt in 2012, Hayward graded out as Pro Football Focus’s No.21 corner among 118 qualified players in 2015. He logged a career-best 65 tackles with seven pass breakups, albeit no interceptions.

Hayward’s most likely position for the Chargers in 2016 will be playing the left side opposite Jason Verrett in the Chargers’ main defense and moving over to cover the slot in “sub” packages.
