Hayward finished Thursday's win over the Broncos with six tackles and one pass defended.
Getting the start on the outside with both Jason Verrett (knee) and Brandon Flowers (concussion) out, Hayward performed exceptionally well, locking down the Broncos passing game for much of the night. Hayward has certainly done his part since coming over from the Packers, and seems to be developing into a solid cornerback, both on the outside and in the slot.
With Jason Verrett (knee) landing on IR earlier this week, and Brandon Flowers missing a second consecutive game due to a concussion, Hayward took on added responsibility in the secondary. While he didn't record an interception, he did respond with an outstanding eight-tackle performance. He'll face a difficult task Thursday, as the Chargers take on the Broncos.
Hayward picked up three tackles (two solo), one pass defended and an interception in the loss to the Colts Sunday.
Hayward has now recorded three interceptions in the last two games and has picked up a fair number of tackles in the process. With games against the Saints and Raiders up next on the schedule, Hayward will see plenty of opportunities to add onto his interception total.
Hayward recorded two interceptions and four solo tackles in the win over the Jaguars on Sunday.
Hayward became the first Chargers player since 2011 to record multiple interceptions in a game, as the former Packers cornerback hounded Blake Bortles all afternoon. Both interceptions came in the first half, effectively stymieing the explosive Jaguars offense for the majority of the first half. While Hayward has seen plenty of snaps through two weeks, that's due to the fact that the Chargers have built impressive leads early, making their opposition have to come back through the air. As the nickel cornerback, Hayward should still see plenty of time on the field, but not enough to warrant IDP consideration on most weeks.
Casey Hayward has signed a three-year deal with the San Diego Chargers , ESPN.com reports.
Hayward -- who recorded 65 tackles in 16 games for the Packers last season -- gives the Chargers some added depth at cornerback behind Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers, with Patrick Robinson a candidate to leave the team as a free agent.
