(1090 The Fan) — The Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman signed a contract extension last week that made him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL — that is, until Cleveland’s Joe Haden reportedly signed a $68 million contract extension Tuesday morning.
Haden’s contract extension is through 2019. According to ProFootball Talk, the new deal includes “a $14 million signing bonus, $22 million fully guaranteed at signing and another $23 million guaranteed for injury.”
Richard Sherman’s contract extension — which will be through 2018 — includes $40 million guaranteed.
In four seasons, Haden has 13 career interceptions (four of which came in 2013) and 186 career tackles, with 41 assists on tackles.
In three seasons, Sherman has 20 interceptions, eight of which came in 2013. He also boasts 141 career tackles and 35 assists on tackles.
