Steelers To Sign CB Joe Haden To Multiyear Deal

Jackson Trade rumors around Joe Haden not surprising but actually making deal would

Here's what we know: The Cleveland Browns released Joe Haden, still a very good corner, earlier this morning.

Haden made big money in Cleveland, and he'll receive $4 million guaranteed from the Browns - with offsets, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The team was reportedly trying to trade Haden on Tuesday and that effort ultimately came to an end with his release. His play also has fallen off sharply since his Pro Bowl seasons in 2013 and 2014.

Selected seventh overall in the 2010 draft, Haden owns 19 interceptions over 90 career games with the Browns. Since there is only one cut day this year, instead of the normal two in the past, it forces teams to actually trade for needs to ensure the player won't hit waivers. Last season, he played in 13 games and recorded 48 tackles with 11 pass deflections and three interceptions, so yes, he can still play (though he was a 4.57 guy six years ago and is nearly assuredly slower than that now), and yes, he'd be a fit.

In 2015, Haden was named Special Olympics' Global Ambassador, becoming the first professional football player to ever hold that distinction.

For his part, Jackson said, "He was a leader on and off the field. I wish him all the best as he continues his career".

The larger concern is Haden's injury history. The fact that the Browns couldn't get so much as a late round pick for him shows that the rest of the National Football League did not think he was worth his $11 million base salary. Boddy-Calhoun appeared in 14 games with the Browns last season, posting three interceptions.

Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns looks on from the crowd during a game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks in October 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio. Coty Sensabaugh has received reps from with the starters for most of training camp. Thomas wrote. "You were always the consummate; teammate, professional, and friend". His play has declined to the point where he may have been riding the bench more often than not this year, so rather than deal with the weekly issue of "why isn't Joe playing", they chose to just cut ties with him after finding that no one in the league is willing to pay Haden the $11 million owed to him on his current contract. They have just over $11 million in cap space. So Haden's release has raised some eyebrows.
