Unrestricted free agent defensive end Reggie Hayward could be close to returning to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2010.
Michael C. Wright of the Florida Times-Union tweets that two weeks after the Jaguars rescinded their offer to Hayward, the sides are talking again and something could get done soon.
In 2009, Hayward landed on injured reserve after breaking his leg in the regular-season opener. It was the second time in the last four years that Hayward played only one game; he also suffered a season-ending injury in Week One of the 2006 season.
When he has been healthy in recent years the 31-year-old Hayward hasn’t always been effective; he managed only 4.5 sacks in 16 games in 2008.
Hayward’s best season came in 2004, when he recorded 10.5 sacks with the Denver Broncos.
