According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Browns could field trade offers for veteran cornerbacks Joe Haden and Tramon Williams ahead of next week’s deadline.
Most of the trade rumors surrounding the Browns have been focused on LT Joe Thomas, but HC Hue Jackson mentioned earlier in the week that they have no plans to trade him this year.
Jason Cole of B/R previously tossed Haden out as someone to watch in regards to a potential trade, so this isn’t the first we’ve heard about him being available.
Haden, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2010. He’s currently in the third year of his six-year, $74.678 million contract that includes $45 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $10.1 million for the 2016 season.
This year, Haden has appeared in four games for the Browns and has recorded 19 tackles, two interceptions, and five pass defenses for the Browns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 cornerback out of 115 qualifying players.
Williams, 33, spent eight years in Green Bay before signing a three-year, $21 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed with the Browns last year. He stands to make a base salary of $6.2 million for the 2016 and another $5.7 million next year.
In 2016, Williams has appeared in five games and recorded 18 tackles, one interception and a pass defense for the Browns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 105 cornerback out of 115 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding potential trades involving either player as the news is available.
