Joe Haden will remain with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The veteran cornerback and the team have agreed to a new three-year, $32 million contract that will keep Haden in Pittsburgh until the 2021 season. Haden is in the final year of his contract he signed 3 years ago when he signed with Pittsburgh after being released by the Cleveland Browns on the eve of the 2017 season.
“Letssss Goooo !!!” Haden posted on Instagram Sunday night. “So glad we got the deal done! On to week 1! Locked IN !!”
The 30-year-old resurrected his career with the Steelers, becoming the team’s top cornerback. Haden has played 26 games over two seasons for Pittsburgh, with one interception and 19 passes defensed. He did not play in the preseason as a precaution due to an injury to his ankle.
The two-time Pro Bowler said last week that injury would not prevent his desire to play in Pittsburgh’s season opener in New England on September 8.
