Steelers Place Three On COVID-19 List Including CB Joe Haden & Eric Ebron, Promote Four

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Saturday that they’ve placed CB Joe Haden, TE Eric Ebron and OLB Cassius Marsh on the COVID-19 List.

The Steelers also promoted OL Anthony Coyle, WR Deon Cain, TE Kevin Rader and K Matthew Wright.

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Haden, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2010. He was in the fourth year of his six-year, $74.678 million contract when the Browns officially cut him loose coming out of the preseason in 2017.

The Steelers quickly signed Haden to a three-year, $27 million contract soon after he was cut and re-signed him to a two-year, $22 million extension in September of last year.

He’s in the second year of his deal and set to make base salaries of $1,050,000 this season and $7,000,000 in 2021. 

In 2020, Haden has appeared in 14 games and recorded 52 total tackles, two tackles for loss, two interceptions, 12 pass defenses, and scored one defensive touchdown.
