The terms: five years, $68 million. $23 million in guarantees, $45 million if you count guarantees with caveats.
So Joe Haden makes more than Richard Sherman.

Do they know he doesn't play WR ?
Or are they planning double platoon for him ?
If I were the Browns I'd hold on to stars like these.
There's no need to burn him p this season, this team is still quite a few players away from being a contender.
One or 2 drafts from now though, I might think about putting him on offense on 3rd down.
He actually was a quarterback long ago, if on offense you wanted him to add to the "crossed-out list of Browns QBs since 1999 jersey."
They will adequately figure out the WR position yet (and I don't see the Gordon suspension ending up being more than 6-8 games at the end of the day.)
I agree 100% this is a great hold-on.
Rivers' maths seems off. Sherman got $14.25 million per year in new money, Haden got $13.6 million per year.
Sherman's new contract pays him more.
That's not the way NFL contracts are paid. Haden's is richer.
No, Sherman has a cheaper final year of his old contract because he was a lower pick and under the new CBA. This leads to a lower cap number but it's the new money that counts.
Sherman's new deal is richer. Or to put it more accurately, he would have had to have been paid massively more in new money than Haden to be 'richer' under your demented criteria.
Our Quick Reads essay this week includes discussion of the league's best punter. Somebody alert Rich Eisen.
