Joe Haden agress to long-term extension with Cleveland Browns

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Browns are keeping their All-Pro corner for at least another five years.

The Cleveland Browns have locked up their best defensive player for the foreseeable future.

All-Pro cornerback Joe Haden is signing an extension that will keep him a Brown through the 2019 NFL season, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk:

Haden, who has been with the Browns since they chose him with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft, has agreed to a new contract that will keep him in Cleveland through the 2019 season.

A league source tells PFT that the deal includes a $14 million signing bonus, $22 million fully guaranteed at signing and another $23 million guaranteed for injury. The signing bonus, the full guarantee and the amount guaranteed for injury all surpass the deal that Richard Sherman just signed with Seattle.

Through four seasons, Haden has intercepted 13 passes and deflected another 67. He named to the Second AP All-Pro team this past season grabbing a career-high six interceptions to go with a career-high 57 solo tackles.

Haden's deal was set to expire next year, as is fellow starting CB Buster Skrine. The Browns also just drafted Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert with the eighth-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

If they can get Skrine signed to an extension, this could be one of the NFL's more formidable secondaries in the year's to come.
