Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden will remain with the team at least through the 2019 season, as the 2013 Pro Bowler signed a deal that will keep with the team for another five years, the team announced Tuesday.

According to Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.com, the contract guarantees Haden $22 million upon signing, a $14 million signing bonus and another $23 million guaranteed for injury.

Between those three components of the deal, Haden's contract exceeds the four-year, $57.4 million extension that Richard Sherman signed last week with the Seattle Seahawks.

"This is a great day for both Joe Haden and the Cleveland Browns,” general manager Ray Farmer said. “Joe’s a good, young player who’s made a commitment to our organization, and he’s somebody with whom we want to move forward in order to advance our football team. He’s a great person. He’s the right guy to both build with and build around as we attempt to become an elite football team.”

Through last season, Haden had a career 234 tackles, two sacks, 13 interceptions and three forced fumbles.

Last season, Haden registered 54 tackles and four interceptions, earning AP second-team All-Pro honors and his first Pro Bowl selection.
