NFL Week 2 - Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden is hanging up the cleats. 

After 12 seasons, the former Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback is set to retire, according to NFL Network. Haden plans to retire as a member of the Browns.

Drafted seventh overall in the 2010 NFL draft by the Browns, Haden made an immediate impact, generating six interceptions and a forced fumble his rookie season. Haden went on to start 81 games for the Browns over seven seasons before joining the Steelers in 2017. He concluded his tenure in Pittsburgh with 13 interceptions and 58 pass breakups over five seasons. 

It feels only fitting that Haden, currently a free agent, would announce the move the day before the Steelers and Browns are set to face off on Thursday Night Football.
