Chargers sign CB Casey Hayward

Hayward joins the list of recent signings by the Chargers.

The Chargers signed former Packers cornerback Casey Hayward to a three-year deal Sunday, adding depth to their secondary.

Hayward, who spent four seasons in Green Bay, started 20 games (and appeared in 51) over that span, totaling 168 tackles, 35 passes defended, nine interceptions and one touchdown. He had a strong showing his rookie season in the NFL, notching six interceptions and 21 passes defended. He has appeared in all 16 games the past two seasons.

The 5-11, 192-pound Georgia native was drafted by the Packers in the second round (pick No. 62) of the 2012 draft. He played both cornerback and nickel with Green Bay and is expected to replace Patrick Robinson, who was with the Chargers last season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2016.
