Haden signs 3-year deal with Steelers
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joe Haden needed a job, a chance of scenery and a chance at a Super Bowl.
The Pittsburgh Steelers were more than happy to give the longtime Cleveland Browns cornerback a shot at all three.
The Steelers signed Haden to a three-year contract on Wednesday night just hours after the Browns granted Haden his release.
Haden, a two-time Pro Bowler, gives the defending AFC North champions an upgrade in the secondary in their bid to chase down Super Bowl champion New England.
Haden’s deal has a total value of $27 million said a person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details were not released. Initial talks between Pittsburgh and Haden were first reported by ESPN.
