"Being unselfish is the only thing that's kept me around," Hayward said. Undetectable to many, Hayward always has been one of the most valued players for the Bucs because of his ability on special teams and to play all three linebacker positions. The football from his first NFL touchdown still sits in his locker, the one linebacker Adam Hayward scooped from the turf at Raymond James Stadium after a blocked punt and carried 29 yards into the end zone Sunday against the Chargers. "I like the little camouflage ribbon on there and everything," Hayward said. With Quincy Black being placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a neck injury he suffered against the Chargers, Hayward will be counted on to start at strongside linebacker. Already a prized keepsake, Hayward was even more geeked that it was a commemorative football specially designed for Veterans Day. "We have some flexibility, but Adam would be the most prepared, so that's probably how we'll go," coach Greg Schiano said Wednesday.
