Browns To Honour Cornerback With 1-Day Contract

The Cleveland Browns have historically been one of the worst franchises in the entire NFL, and although they've turned it around in recent years behind the likes of Myles Garrett, Denzel Ward and Nick Chubb, there was a time when this team was the laughing stock of the entire NFL. Throughout that time though, they still had players that were considered absolute warriors, with the likes of Joe Thomas spending their entire career in Cleveland throughout that time, but one that often goes overlooked is the recent retired Joe Haden, who was with the Browns from 2010 through the 2017 season. 

Throughout that time, Haden was a second team All-Pro, a member of the PFWA All-Rookie team, as well as reaching two Pro Bowls, before leaving to go to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2018 season. Haden recently announced his retirement, and today, the news came out that Cleveland would be honouring their former star cornerback by giving him a 1-day contract to retire as a member of the Browns, as well as celebrating his career during their Week 8 matchup with the division rival Cincinnati Bengals. 

Alongside Thomas, the Browns may have been one of the worst teams in the league, but Haden was out there balling every single week, and he deserves to be honoured by a Browns franchise that have now thankfully turned the franchise around.
