Browns Release CB Joe Haden

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Cleveland Browns have released 28-year-old cornerback Joe Haden.

Adam Schefter reports Haden is free to sign with a team after 4pm on Wednesday.

The Browns reportedly tried to trade Haden before releasing him on Wednesday.

Haden had three years and $32.6 million left on his contract and respective cap hits of $14.4, $14.4, and $10.5 million. Now he is a free-agent.

Haden has played just 18 games over the past two seasons, dealing with injuries. He has 19 career interceptions in seven NFL seasons and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2013 and 2014.

The Eagles were in need of cornerback help before they acquired Ronald Darby for the Bills for Jordan Matthews earlier in the month.

The Eagles drafted CB Sidney Jones in the second round and CB Rasul Douglas in the third round of this year’s draft. With Darby, Jones, Douglas, and 2016 draft pick Jalen Mills, the Eagles seem pretty set at cornerback. But now that Haden is a free-agent, you never know.
