Chargers extend Casey Hayward

Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward just got some job security in Los Angeles.

Hayward and the Chargers have agreed to a three-year contract extension that includes $20 million guaranteed at signing, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Although Hayward still had one more year on his contract, the Chargers decided after a big season in 2017 to lock him up for two years beyond 2018. His cap hit would have been $5.1 million this year; there’s no word on how this deal will affect his cap hit.

Last year Hayward started all 16 games for the Chargers and was chosen as a second-team All-Pro.

  1. $6.7m/year? What an idiot. This guy has been like a Top 3 ranked CB for PFF for at least two years, plus more interceptions than almost anyone the past few years. He could’ve gotten around double that in a year.

    Good job Chargers!

  2. Slauson was solid two years ago but Is not athletic enough to keep up with the offense Lynn and Wiz want to run and it showed last year before he got injured. Rather resign Wiggens (never thought I’d say that)

    How did Green Bay let this guy leave? He’s a great cornerback

    How did GB allow Casey to leave? Two words, my friend, TED THOMPSON!!!

    He was the most inept GM in all of football, but GB fans love the guy after Rodgers fell out of the sky and into his lap in the 2005 draft. Another pro bowler who Thompson let go is Micah Hyde of the Bills.

    Goodness gracious! How inept that organization has become. Mark Murphy needs to go also, if the so-called “Directors” would have the gonads to escort him to the exit.

  4. never understood their reasoning in letting him and micah hyde leave just to get a compensatory pick. In fairness though he wasn’t nearly this good as he is now when he played for green bay.

  5. Ted royally screwed that one up, although it’s possible that Capers is the one who told Ted to move on from him and Hyde. Horrible decisions.

  6. I blame Ted but not as much as I do Dom. He never put his guys in position to take advantage of their talent.

    Even when someone pointed out Clay had 2x more sacks from one side than the other with Perry on the other – he forced them to play where they weren’t the most productive.

    Green Bay let him go because in 2015 our roster included Sam Shields, Damarious Randall (1st Round Pick 2015), Quinten Rollins (2nd Round pick 2015), Micah Hyde, and Casey Hayward. Hindsight is 20/20. The following year Sam Shields had another concussion and never played again. The two promising rookies (who played well in 2015) fell off the map.
    Ted Thompson banked on Randell and Rollins replacing Hayward and Hyde. Sam Shields go down with a career threatening injury and that is how you go from one of the best secondaries in the league to one of the worst.

  8. Guessing he didn’t fit in Green Bay because the idiots up there play corners at safety and vice versa. He was an actual corner and they didn’t like it.

    $20mm is the guaranteed portion. I believe the total value was $36mm.
