After being released by the Cleveland Browns earlier today, Joe Haden has landed with an AFC North rival. The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed Haden to a three-year, $27 million deal. Oddly enough, Haden had $33 million over three years with his old deal with the Browns. Haden now makes, even more, money as Cleveland still owes him $4 million in guaranteed money.

Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report the news:

Schefter also added that Haden turned down biggers offers because he wanted to play for Pittsburgh. The Steelers interest isn’t shocking considering they tried desperately to land Dre Kirkpatrick from the Bengals this offseason. With the health concerns of Senquez Golson, the Steelers had a big need. Ross Cockrell, Artie Burns, and William Gay are the primary corner options on the roster.

Pittsburgh rolls the dice on a former first round pick that has been plagued by injuries dealing with a groin and hamstring issue the last two years. Haden, 28, has recorded 19 career interceptions during his seven-year career.
