In a move that could help bolster both the depth of their inside linebacker position and their special teams units, the Redskins have agreed to terms with former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Adam Hayward, his agent, Derrick Fox said.
Hayward’s deal is for three years. He is scheduled to visit Redskins Park on Wednesday to take a physical; if he passes, he will sign his contract.
The 6-1, 240-pound Portland State product has played primarily on special teams in his seven previous seasons in the NFL. Hayward has made 13 starts on defense in seven seasons, recording 128 tackles and a sack.
