Bucs keep linebacker Adam Hayward
By Pat Yasinskas
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just announced they have re-signed linebacker Adam Hayward to a three-year deal.
Hayward, a four-year veteran, can provide backup to Geno Hayes and Quincy Black on the outside, but his main role is on special teams. He led the team with a career-high 20 special-teams tackles last season and has 58 for his career. Hayward also has started four games at linebacker.
The Bucs also announced they’ve added three undrafted free agents – tight end Jose Cruz, long-snapper Aaron Feld and running back Deonte’ Jackson.
