Cleveland Browns sign cornerback Joe Haden to contract extension

By Dan Kadar Published: May 13, 2014

The Browns have signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a contract extension that will keep him in Cleveland through the 2019 season.

The contract is a five-year deal for $68 million with $45 million guaranteed.

"This is a great day for both Joe Haden and the Cleveland Browns," General Manager Ray Farmer said in a release. "Joe's a good, young player who's made a commitment to our organization, and he's somebody with whom we want to move forward in order to advance our football team. He's a great person. He’s the right guy to both build with and build around as we attempt to become an elite football team."

The Browns picked Haden, 25, with the seventh pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He made his first Pro Bowl after last season and was also named an All Pro by the Associated Press.

In four seasons with the Browns, Haden has started 48 of 57 games played and has 263 tackles, 13 interceptions and 67 passes defended.

Last week the Browns selected Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert in the first round of the draft.
