Shareef said Haden hopes to have the deal signed in the next couple of hours, which would allow him to join the team for the evening practice. Haden missed a week of rookie sessions and the first full-squad practice of training camp Saturday morning.
Shareef confirmed the deal could reach $50 million, with a $12 million signing bonus and $26 million guaranteed. The Browns have yet to confirm the deal. Their policy is to wait until the contract is signed.
