After just under six months of rehab, the Green Bay Packers cornerback believes he's ready for offseason workouts, which start April 22.
"I think I'm ready for it now," Hayward told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "I'm just here and I don't have to push it and I probably won't push it crazy then, but I'm in a good enough shape to finish everything and do everything."
Hayward enjoyed a spectacular rookie season, with six interceptions. His health and return to 2012 form sits as the keystone to the Packers' offseason plans in the secondary.
Hayward's health, however, will play a role in how that transformation is executed.
