Actually, the nine-year veteran was packaged with a seventh-round draft pick in exchange for a sixth-round pick as part of a deal to clear salary cap space. Hayes is due to earn about $5.5 million this season.
Hayes, 31, said he was looking forward to sweet tea, no more traffic and lower rent.
He also wrote, “All jokes aside going to miss y'all boys in the locker room…. thanks to everyone who believed in me I hope I made a good impression on you all like you did for me and to St. Louis to LA fans I love you all.”
