Biography

The Chargers signed former Green Bay Packers cornerback Casey Hayward to a three-year contract in March.

Hayward has nine career interceptions. In 2014, he tied for the Packers’ team lead in interceptions, while tying for seventh in the NFL in total takeaways and ranking eighth in interception return yards. As a rookie in 2012, Hayward led the team and tied for fifth in the NFL with six picks, while also pacing the squad with 25 passes defensed. His six interceptions led all NFL rookies and they were the most by a Packers rookie since 1999.

Hayward just missed out on his 10th career interception during a game against the Chargers last October as a false start penalty against the Bolts negated Hayward’s would-be pick.

Hayward and his mother, Tish, oversee the Hayward’s Hands Foundation, which annually hosts a Thanksgiving Drive, a Christmas Toy Drive and a youth football camp in his native Perry, Georgia. Tish, who is a breast cancer survivor, was honored by NFL Mothers and Paradigm 360 in 2015 for her work with Casey and the Foundation.

Hayward hopes to take advantage of business classes he took at Vanderbilt to own a couple of Chick-fil-A restaurants after he hangs up his football cleats.

Hayward’s hobbies include watching movies and bowling.

Hayward’s cousin, Chris Duncan, serves in the Army.
