Browns re­lease cor­ner­back Haden

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

BEREA, Ohio — For­mer Pro Bowl cor­ner­back Joe Haden has been re­leased by the Cleve­land Browns. Haden has been slowed by in­juries the past two sea­sons. The Browns felt he was no longer go­ing to help them and ter­mi­nated his con­tract Wed­nes­day. The team had been try­ing to trade Haden, who was one of its cap­tains last season.

The 28-year-old Haden made the Pro Bowl in 2013 and 2014 be­fore the team signed him to a five-year, US$67.5 mil­lion ex­ten­sion. Haden’s de­par­ture leaves the Browns, who went 1-15 last season, thin on ex­pe­ri­ence and depth in their sec­ondary.

Haden played in just 18 games the past two sea­sons be­cause of in­juries. He played in 13 games last season de­spite a se­ri­ous groin in­jury.
