A familiar face of the Chargers is joining one of the team’s division rivals.
Cornerback Casey Hayward is signing with the Raiders on a one-year deal.
Hayward was set to be entering the final year of his original contract with Los Angeles, but the team released him in March to clear up some cap space after an underwhelming 2020 season.
In five seasons with the Bolts, Hayward defended 66 passes and picked off 14. Along the way, he earned two trips to the Pro Bowl and was named All-Pro twice.
Hayward reunites with defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who took the position earlier this offseason.
