Former #Jaguars, #Dolphins and #Vikings cornerback Tae Hayes is signing with the #Panthers, pending a physical, per league source. Hayes played for the USFL champs, the Birmingham Stallions, this spring. He was briefly on Carolina p-squad last year. @PFN365
During the USFL’s season, Hayes was spectacular. He posted 37 tackles, and an interception, in ten games for Birmingham.
On top of that, he was an integral piece to their Championship run. During the semi-finals game against the New Orleans Breakers, Tae made a clutch interception right before halftime, shutting down an important Breakers drive.
He has spent time in the NFL before, playing with the Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins, and Jacksonville Jaguars. Now, he gets to pursue his NFL dreams with the Panthers, due to his sensational performances in the USFL.
