Sources reported that a $45 million total is guaranteed ($23 million fully).
Haden’s deal was reported earlier on by ProFootballTalk.com.
Price per head services found out that the player’s contract was made less than a week after the Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman signed a $57.4 million, four-year contract extension, turning him into the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. That extension included $40 million in guaranteed money.
Even though Haden got more guaranteed money than Sherman did, pay per head sportsbooks learned that the player’s contract is for a year longer than Sherman’s, meaning that when it comes to new guaranteed money, the Seahawks’ cornerback’s agreement is still a bigger one.
Cleveland announced that Haden signed the extension, which will run through 2019, and pay per head sportsbooks were delighted to learn about this.
“This is a great day for both Joe Haden and the Cleveland Browns,” general Ray Farmer said.
“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. He’s a true professional. When we talk about identifying talent, building through the draft, developing solid players and retaining them, Joe Haden’s at the top of the list. I’m excited. Our team is excited.”
Haden, who was chosen in 2010 with the seventh overall pick out of Florida, is coming off his first appearance in a Pro Bowl. Pay per head sportsbooks saw that the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder played in 57 career games, making 68 passes defensed, 13 interceptions, two sacks, and three forced fumbles.
Mike Pettine, Browns first-year coach, said that getting a deal done with Haden was a big move for the team.
