The Cleveland Browns just signed Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden to a five-year extension. His deal is worth an astounding $68 million and $45 million guaranteed. A $14 million signing bonus to the seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft, surpasses what Seattle Seahawks star cornerback, Richard Sherman received last week.
Wait for it.. Let the trash talk begin.

Ouch and what a zinger to the always mouth-flapping Sherman, who of course has already put together this handy-dandy flowchart and interception count graph to defend himself. Yes, you’re the big man on Campus Sherman.

Indeed, Haden’s huge pay raise has flooded Twitter with dueling cornerback feuds, and brutal public opinions.
Joe Haden's new #Browns contract includes:
-68,000,000 Richard Sherman tweets about his INT total
-0 Super Bowl wins guaranteed
