Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden has groin surgery

CLEVELAND, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Two-time Pro Bowl selection Joe Haden underwent groin surgery Tuesday.

"Groin surgery went Great," the Cleveland Browns cornerback tweeted Tuesday. "Rehab starts now!! First team all pro here I come!!! No excuses just RESULTS!! #HadenNation."

Haden was slowed from two groin injuries this season and needs to regain his Pro Bowl form for the struggling Browns defense. The Browns hired Gregg Williams last week as its new defensive coordinator. Haden had 37 tackles and three interceptions this season for a defense that allowed the most points per game in the AFC [28.3].

The 27-year-old signed a six-year, $74.6 million contract in 2014. The deal includes $45 million guaranteed. Haden is set to make $11.1 million in each of the next two seasons. His price tag is $10.4 million in 2019.
