The impending clash of Hurricane Irma on Florida’s southern coast has caused a Week 1 matchup between the Buccaneers and Dolphins to either be moved to a later date or new location.
Both teams are on bye during Week 11, so there has been talk of moving the game back. But the two teams may have found a neutral site in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia to keep the game this weekend, according to ESPN.com.
The Steelers announced the signing Wednesday night but did not disclose the fiscal terms.
Haden was released by the Browns earlier Wednesday and it was reported that the Saints, Chiefs and Cowboys were also interested in recruiting him, but the process didn’t take long.
Haden had been under contract for $11.1 million this season, $11.2 million next season and $10.5 million in 2019, though he was not subject to waivers and was free to sign with another team beginning Wednesday after 4 p.m. ET.
Despite back-to-back Pro Bowl selections, Haden’s reliability has decreased due to missing a number of games over the past two years with various injuries, including a concussion, finger injury and a groin issue.
Nonetheless, the Steelers are willing to roll the dice on the 28-year-old.
