The Los Angeles Chargers announced the contract extension of cornerback Casey Hayward on Sunday.
According to NFL.com, the extension is for three years at $36million with $20m guaranteed. Hayward then confirmed the report.
Hayward earned a Pro Bowl selection and was a Second-Team All Pro selection in each of the last two seasons.
In 2016, he led the league with seven interceptions, becoming the first player in franchise history to accomplish that feat outright. He added four more interceptions last season.
