The Browns cut two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden on Wednesday.

A league source told the Beacon Journal on Tuesday the Browns had floated Haden's name to other teams in trade talks for a while. Unable to strike a deal, the Browns severed ties with Haden, who has been plagued by injuries the past two seasons.

“We want to thank Joe for all he has done for this organization both on and off the field,” head of football operations Sashi Brown said in a news release. “He has been a great teammate and a true asset to the Cleveland community. These are very difficult decisions, we have the utmost respect for Joe and in my eyes, he will always be a Cleveland Brown.”

“Joe gave everything he had for the Cleveland Browns and that’s all you can ask for as a coach,” coach Hue Jackson said in the release. “He was a leader on and off the field. I wish him all the best as he continues his career.”
