He registered 52 total tackles, two tackles for loss, two interceptions and 12 passes defensed during the 2020 season. One of his two interceptions he returned for a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens.
Haden, who will turn 32 years of age in April, is set to earn $7 million in 2021, the final year of his current contract.
