Casey Hayward released by Los Angeles Chargers, 4 ideal landing spots for Pro Bowl cornerback
Feb. 21, 2024 – 23:41 – The Los Angeles Chargers released cornerback Casey Hayward on Saturday, parting ways with the Pro Bowl cornerback due to the NFL salary cap crunch.
Hayward has been one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the NFL since he entered the league as a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. However, coming off a poor 2020 season, the decision to cut the 31-year-old cornerback was easy for Los Angeles. By releasing him now, the Chargers created $9.75 million in cap space, money that can be spent to build an offense around Justin Herbert.
While Hayward’s time in Los Angeles is over, it shouldn’t be long before multiple NFL teams are calling his agent with interest in signing him. So, let’s dive into some of the potential landing spots for the star cornerback.
