Browns place Haden on IR, add two


The Browns placed cornerback Joe Haden on injured reserve Monday. Haden hasn’t played since Nov. 1 due to his second concussion of the season.

Haden was a Pro Bowler in 2013 and 2014. He signed a five-year, $67 million extension with the Browns prior to 2014.

Haden played in five games this season. He suffered a second concussion in his first game back from his first concussion.

The Browns made two additions Monday, claiming guard Kaleb Johnson off waivers from the Ravens and signing wide receiver Rannell Hall off of the Buccaneers’ practice squad. That signing comes a day after Browns wide receiver Brian Hartline suffered a broken collarbone against the 49ers.

Earlier Monday, Browns coach Mike Pettine said Hartline will have surgery Tuesday.

Johnson was waived last weekend as the Ravens added quarterback Bryn Renner and wide receiver Charles Matthews to their active roster. Hall is an undrafted rookie from Central Florida.

The Browns also waived offensive lineman Gabe Ikard.

  1. He is the most overrated db in the NFL, at $11.1 Million cap hit this team should dump him. He gets burnt all the time, rookie receivers beat his butt this year like he was an old man.
    I hope he reads this cause the Browns fans know I’m telling the truth.
    Amari Cooper the WR this team should have drafted beat him like a drum then the rookie for AZ Cardinals beat him too.
    This guy is an overrated bum!

  2. Why not put Dwayne Bowe on IR so he doesn’t have to take up space on the plane to Seattle? He can just not help the team from the comfort of his living room and still collect his half a million per game…


  3. Haden faked this injury because he started the season getting toasted by just about every WR he faced.

    Trade this dude.

  4. Trade Haden he isn’t that good and don’t want to play in Cleveland anymore which I can’t blame him really but get something for him.

  5. Haden is playing that concussion for all it’s worth in order to collect his checks and not have to go out there and get toasted by every wide receiver he attempts to cover. Offensive coordinators no longer avoid him and they actually seem to be intentionally targeting him because they know a tall, fast wideout will beat him like a drum all day.

    His time in Cleveland should be over. Trade him in the off season for whatever they can get for him.
