ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- DJ Hayden's rookie season in the NFL never really got off the ground.
After being limited the entire offseason and much of training camp by heart surgery, Hayden had a rough rookie year at cornerback for the Oakland Raiders before being shut down halfway through the season because of a sports hernia injury.
Now after an entire offseason to rebuild the strength he lost from the near-fatal heart injury in November 2012, Hayden wants to show the Raiders that he can be the player they envisioned when they drafted him 12th overall in the 2013 draft.
