Did the Cleveland Browns make the right move by releasing Joe Haden?

After shopping cornerback Joe Haden around the league, the Cleveland Browns decided to release the Pro Bowl cornerback. The move was made to save salary cap space for the future and might've been the right call considering the assets the team could get in return. However, dumping Haden without receiving anything in a trade seems like a panic transaction, and the team could've genuinely used his skills in the secondary this season. Did the Browns flub another offseason move? 🏾 🏈

As painful as it might be, cutting Joe Haden loose was the right move for the Cleveland Browns. Haden has been a model Cleveland representative, but he has lost a step the past couple years and is costing the team valuable cap space that can be used to develop younger players. 

It would've been nice to get something back for Haden, but cutting him now saves the team money, and gives the cornerback the chance to play for a contender. This was the right move for both parties.

You have a two-time Pro Bowl cornerback, and you couldn't get anything back in a trade? The Browns needed to do something to take Haden off the books, but cutting him reeks of incompetence. 

Acquiring draft picks, an expiring contract or even cash would've been way better than letting Haden go without anything in return. The NFL is a business, and the Browns just made another terrible business decision by letting a Pro Bowl cornerback go with nothing to show for it.
