LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The NFL Draft may be done, but the Raiders continue to re-tool their roster. On Tuesday, the silver and black announced they signed cornerback Casey Hayward.

Hayward is a nine year NFL veteran, spending his last five years with the LA Chargers where he was coached by the now current Raiders defensive coordinator, Gus Bradley.

The two-time Pro Bowler started 61 of his 64 games in four seasons with the Chargers and has appeared in 129 contests with 95 starts over his career. Hayward has 23 interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns, 371 tackles, 100 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries in nine seasons.

Since entering the league in 2012, Hayward ranked tied for ninth in interceptions, while his 100 passes defensed rank sixth-most. Hayward appeared in 107 consecutive games to mark an NFL record among cornerback, while also starting 70 consecutive contests, most among active cornerbacks before being snapped this past season.
