Joe Haden retiring; CB signing one-day NFL contract to retire with Cleveland Browns, sources say
Haden’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed the decision to retire to Schefter.
Haden, 33, had spent the 2017 to 2021 seasons with the Steelers after he was released by the Browns. He had served as a steady presence in the Steelers’ secondary, starting 66 games and racking up 10 interceptions during his time in Pittsburgh, but dealt with a foot injury last season, when he missed five games and did not record an interception.
A first-round selection by the Browns in 2010, Haden was a two-time Pro Bowler in Cleveland (2013, ’14) while tallying at least three interceptions in five of seven seasons.
In his NFL career, Haden made 148 starts and totaled 615 tackles, 29 interceptions and 2 touchdowns. He was selected to three Pro Bowls.
