The Las Vegas Raiders announced a series of roster moves on Saturday ahead of their Week 17 game.
The full list of moves includes:
- Raiders activated CB Casey Hayward, LB Cory Littleton, LB Denzel Perryman and DT Darius Philon from the COVID-19 list.
- Raiders elevated S Jordan Brown, C Hroniss Grasu, WR Tyron Johnson and DT Damion Square to their active roster.
Hayward, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract in Green Bay before signing a three-year, $15.3 million contract that included $6.8 million guaranteed with the Chargers in 2016.
The Chargers later signed Hayward to a three-year, 36 million extension with $20 million fully guaranteed in 2018. He was owed a base salary of $9,750,000 for the 2021 season when the Chargers released him this past March.
From there, Hayward signed a one-year contract worth up to $4 million with the Raiders in May.
