Hayes, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Appalachian State back in May of last year. He later signed a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Jaguars, but was waived coming out of the preseason.
The Jaguars re-signed Hayes to their practice squad before calling him a month later and he would eventually be claimed off waivers by the Dolphins. Miami once again cut him loose coming out of training camp and re-signed him to the practice squad.
In 2019, Hayes appeared in three games and recorded seven tackles, no interceptions and two pass defenses for the Dolphins and Jaguars.
