News: Hayward tallied 43 tackles (33 solo), three interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and a defensive touchdown in 16 games during the 2014 season.
Impact: Hayward showed a nose for the football despite playing primarily in nickel and dime defenses during 2014. His role in 2015 will largely depend on whether or not the Packers bring back one or both of pending free agents -- and fellow cornerbacks -- Tramon Williams and Davon House.
