Cleveland Browns trying to trade cornerback Joe Haden

After reports surfaced Tuesday morning that the Cleveland Browns are "aggressively" trying to move veteran cornerback Joe Haden, speculation began nearly immediately that the Eagles could be among the teams interested in striking a deal.

He is due to be paid $11.1 million this season, and $11.2 million and $10.5 million in 2018 and '19. Even after trading long-snapper Jon Dorenbos on Monday evening, the Eagles have just under $11.3 million in cap space, according to Spotrac.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora was the first to report the news Tuesday morning.

Health has been a major concern when it comes to the Browns' secondary in recent seasons, and over the last two years, Haden, a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback, has been bitten by the injury bug on several occasions. Haden is now in the third season of a five-year contract extension that he signed during the 2014 offseason.

While Haden is a game-changer when healthy and playing to his potential, the Browns remain stuck in a lengthy rebuild, and possibly landing a quality draft pick may be of more value to them than the talented defensive back.
