Bears waived CB Kelvin Hayden.

Hayden was competing for Chicago's No. 4 corner job after missing the 2013 season to a hamstring injury. He didn't show enough on special teams to earn a roster spot. The Bears will go with Sherrick McManis and Demontre Hurst behind starters Charles Tillman, Kyle Fuller, and Tim Jennings.

Bears re-signed CB Kelvin Hayden to a one-year contract.

Hayden, 31 in July, missed the entire 2013 season with a torn left hamstring and has battled various injuries throughout his career. He appeared in all 16 games in 2012 and is a key special teams player. As Isaiah Frey has developed into a solid slot corner, Hayden's 2014 defensive role is up in the air.
Fri, Feb 28, 2014 12:10:00 PM

ESPN Chicago reports there's a "strong" chance the Bears re-sign free agent CB Kelvin Hayden.

Hayden tore his left hamstring last summer and spent the season on injured reserve. He was expected to serve as the Bears' nickel corner. With Charles Tillman a free agent and looking like he could be headed elsewhere, Hayden will help stabilize the position for the time being. He'll likely only net a one-year deal.

ESPN Chicago reports the Bears have expressed interest in re-signing free agent CB Kelvin Hayden.

Hayden spent the 2013 season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, but was expected to serve as the Bears' nickel cornerback prior to going down. He should only require a one-year deal to return.
Fri, Feb 21, 2014 06:11:00 PM

Bears placed CB Kelvin Hayden on injured reserve with a torn left hamstring, ending his season.

The move to injured reserve was just a formality. Hayden faces a six-to-eight month recovery and should be ready for OTAs next spring. He'll be a free agent next March, so he might face a frosty market early on. Isaiah Frey and Zackary Bowman will compete for nickel duties in Chicago with Hayden out.

Bears CB Kelvin Hayden tore his left hamstring and is done for the season.

He needs surgery and faces 6-8 months of recovery. Re-signed to a one-year deal in the offseason, 30-year-old Hayden was expected to serve as the Bears' nickel cornerback. He played 472 snaps last season and recorded 37 tackles, five breakups, and one interception. Isaiah Frey is the leading in-house candidate to replace Hayden at slot corner, which is a potentially huge downgrade.
Wed, Aug 7, 2013 12:35:00 PM

Bears re-signed CB Kelvin Hayden to a one-year contract.

It was the Bears' preference all along to re-sign their slot cornerback. Going on his ninth year in the league, Hayden notched 37 tackles and one pick last season. He should see somewhere in the neighborhood of 450-500 snaps in 2013.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 07:57:00 PM

The Bears are expected to re-sign free agent CB Kelvin Hayden.

Hayden hasn't received a peep of known interest on the open market. He's most valuable to the Bears, who lost D.J. Moore to the Panthers in free agency. Hayden is needed as a slot corner.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 10:47:00 AM

ESPN Chicago reports the Bears would like to re-sign free agent CB Kelvin Hayden, but that he's expected to test the open market.

The former Colt served as the Bears' slot corner last season, notching 37 tackles and one interception in 472 snaps. Hayden won't draw interest as a starter in a flooded cornerback market.
Tue, Mar 5, 2013 06:27:00 PM

The Chicago Tribune says the Bears will "probably" try to re-sign free agent CB Kelvin Hayden.

Hayden functioned well as the Bears' nickel corner last season, behind starters Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. With the free agent cornerback pool exceptionally deep, the Bears won't have to break the bank to bring him back.
Wed, Feb 27, 2013 09:07:00 AM

Bears CB Kelvin Hayden (toe) is is now practicing at OTAs.

Hayden was still in a walking boot as of early April, but he's progressed back to 100 percent. The former Colts starter and Super Bowl hero ran with the first-team defense at Wednesday's practice, with Charles Tillman absent from the voluntary workout. Hayden will battle for sub-package duties this August.
Wed, Jun 6, 2012 03:36:00 PM

Bears CB Kelvin Hayden (toe) will not be ready of the start of the Bears' offseason program April 16.

Hayden is still in a walking boot after a toe injury landed him on injured reserve in late December. He'll have to prove he's healthy and effective in training camp to earn a roster spot.
Fri, Apr 6, 2012 12:27:00 PM

Bears signed CB Kelvin Hayden to a one-year contract.

The 28-year-old was a liability in coverage while picking up mid-season snaps with the Falcons last season. Lovie Smith's Tampa-2 defense should be a better for his skills, though he's unlikely to play beyond sub-packages.
Thu, Apr 5, 2012 05:10:00 PM

Free agent CB Kelvin Hayden will reportedly visit the Saints this weekend.

Although 2010 first-rounder Patrick Robinson is expected to move into the starting lineup, the Saints are on the lookout for veteran depth after losing Tracy Porter to the Broncos.
