Browns “Aggressively” Trying To Trade CB Joe Haden

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has heard from multiple teams that the Browns are “aggressively” trying to trade veteran CB Joe Haden and are “very motivated” to move his contract.

Haden has reportedly been on the trading block dating back to last year, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

For what it’s worth, ESPN’s Ed Werder report last year that the Saints attempted to trade for Haden before the deadline but ultimately determined the Browns’ asking price was too high for them.

Haden, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2010. He’s currently in the fourth year of his six-year, $74.678 million contract that includes $45 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $11.1 million over the next two years of the agreement.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Haden would free up $7.6 million of available cap space while creating $6.8 million in dead money.

In 2016, Haden appeared in 13 games for the Browns and recorded 48 tackles, three interceptions, and 11 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 88 cornerback out of 110 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding a possible Haden trade as the news is available.
