“We are aware of the situation, and we will refrain from further comment as it is a pending legal matter,” the Jets said in a statement to the New York Post.

Hayes was a standout defensive back at Appalachian State after playing high school football for Decatur in Alabama. He went undrafted in 2019 and started his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has bounced around on several rosters since then.

Hayes has been with the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens before signing with the Jets during the 2023 season.
