Whether or not you believe the Green Bay Packers screwed up in letting cornerback Casey Hayward walk in free agency without offering him a deal, one thing is certain. Hayward put a giant chip on his shoulder.
Since leaving the Packers for the Los Angeles Chargers, Hayward has twice been named an All-Pro. He’s developed into one of the best cornerbacks in the game and he’s done it playing outside. That was something the Packers didn’t think he could do.
When both he and another cornerback the Packers didn’t want — Micah Hyde, who is now a safety for the Buffalo Bills — made the Pro Bowl, Hayward was quick to throw shade at the Packers. And, okay, probably rightfully so.
Hayward has claimed that he’s the best cornerback in the league. Maybe he is. But he still gets no respect and he’s always happy to point that out to everyone.
The dumbass top 100 players list is being slowly revealed on the NFL Network right now. Hayward didn’t like his ranking.
Last year I was #64, this year I’m #59 on the top 100 and even though I see I’m trending the right direction, y’all got to be crazy to think there are 58 players better than me in the NFL. 🧐
Here’s one point.
I’d love it if any Packers’ cornerback could even make this list. Like, even in the 90s. Hell, be ranked No. 99 for all I care. That’s an improvement over sucking balls.
Here’s another point.
I don’t care about this list.
Yeah, it’s voted on by other NFL players, but it’s a fucking list. Lists are completely subjective and dumb. A diversion when nothing is going on.
I pay no attention and neither should Casey Hayward.
