In early April, a report surfaced that the Cleveland Browns and star cornerback Joe Haden were working on a new contract.

Just a few days later, Albert Breer of the NFL Network reported that everything was “positive” and that Haden was a “top priority.”

Nearly a month later, the sides have not worked out a deal, but there doesn’t appear to be any worry.

However, according to Nate Ulirch of The Akron Beacon Journal, Haden wants the deal done as soon as possible.


Haden was drafted with the seventh overall pick in the first round of the 2010 Draft after helping anchor one of the best defenses in the country in each of last two seasons with the Florida Gators.

He quickly became an excellent cornerback and has cemented his status as a Pro Bowl caliber player.

Last season, Haden made 54 tackles and intercepted four passes.
