According to Jeremy Fowler and Adam Schefter of ESPN, Joe Haden and the Pittsburgh Steelers have agreed on a two-year contract extension.

While the length of the contract would be what many have expected, the larger question was if Hayden would be receiving an extension or an all-new three-year deal. If the report holds true and Haden is given a two-year extension, a likely scenario would be for almost $9 million of the $10 million Haden was due in 2019 being converted to a signing bonus and spread out over the length of the contract.
