The Cleveland Browns have rewarded Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden, one of the top young defensive players in the game.

Haden got a new contract through the 2019 season, which is worth $68 million and includes $45 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.

Haden got a $14 million signing bonus and $22 million fully guaranteed with an additional $23 million guaranteed for injury, according to Pro Football Talk.

Haden has excelled in recent years, emerging as a shutdown cornerback.

The Browns are building some momentum lately, signing Haden and drafting quarterback Johnny Manziel and cornerback Justin Gilbert.
