The Cleveland Browns are becoming known for their secondary and that is largely due to the presence of cornerback Joe Haden. On Wednesday the team reached agreement with Haden on a five-year extension though the 2019 season.

Haden was the seventh overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Mike Garafolo reports that Haden’s new deal is worth $45 million guaranteed and $68 million overall, each number surpasses the recent deal between Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks.

The Browns added cornerback Justin Gilbert in the first round of the NFL Draft and later selected Johnny Manziel at No. 22.
