No movement on new contract for Joe Haden

There was word during the offseason program that Steelers cornerback Joe Haden was looking for an extension as he enters the final year of the three-year contract he signed with the team in 2017.

Such a deal does not appear to be on the front burner for the team, however. Haden’s agent Drew Rosenhaus told Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com that nothing is happening in regard to talks concerning a new deal.

An extension that lowers Haden’s 2019 cap number could be useful as the NFLPA’s daily cap calculations have the Steelers with less than $985,000 in cap space at the moment, but the team may prefer to see how Haden does as a 30-year-old before committing to anything beyond this year.

Lolley also points out that safety Sean Davis and cornerback Mike Hilton, who has not signed his exclusive rights free agent tender, are also looking for new contracts. Both are also represented by Rosenhaus, so there will likely be contact between agent and team on one matter or another in the coming weeks.

    That close to the cap and still lost recently to Tim Tebow and Blake Bortles in the playoffs and didn’t even make the playoffs last year! Yikes- sounds like they spend money like a drunkin sailor with nothing to show but a great big hangover

    How about 6 Lombardi Trophies in the trophy case; two of which are with their current QB at the helm. Your jealousy is making you look like a fool!

  3. Hope that Haden has a good year. Waiting to see how he performs this year, and gauging how much he may have left in the tank seems like an intelligent move. Steelers seem to prioritize defensive line, linebackers, and pass rushers. I like that strategy, with regards to spending under the cap.
