Broncos S Eric Hagg is retiring.
A 2011 seventh-round pick of the Browns, Hagg combined for 22 appearances across his first two NFL campaigns, but was out of the league last season. Rather than play out his remote shot at cracking the Broncos' 53-man roster, Hagg has decided to go out on his own terms. The Nebraska product is only 23. Jul 21 - 5:39 PM

Browns waived S Eric Hagg.

Hagg opened 2012 as the Browns' starting free safety, but ended up playing just 365 snaps on defense. He was expected to focus on special teams this season. A three-year veteran, Hagg played nickel back in college. Signed for just $555,000, there's a chance he'll get claimed on waivers. Hagg was the No. 248 pick of the 2011 draft.

The Browns are expected to let S Eric Hagg focus on special teams this season.

Hagg opened the 2012 season as Cleveland's starting free safety, but was a healthy scratch by Week 3. He also didn't do much on special teams. The Browns badly need a free safety to play across from SS T.J. Ward. Free agent Kerry Rhodes would make a ton of sense due to his history with new DC Ray Horton.

Browns FS Eric Hagg was a healthy scratch in Week 3.

Hagg went from starter to inactive in a week. Usama Young took his place and was backed up by undrafted rookie Tashaun Gipson.

Eric Hagg is on the hot seat as the Browns' starting free safety.

"We would like to get a little more production from that position," DC Dick Jauron said. The Bengals exploited Hagg in coverage last week. Usama Young could begin eating into his snaps if his play doesn't improve.

Eric Hagg has remained the Browns' starting free safety during OTAs.

Hagg missed most of his rookie year due to knee surgery, but showed enough late-season promise to warrant a long look for a starting gig. Veteran Usama Young will continue to push him for the job.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms Eric Hagg ''has the early edge'' on the Browns' starting free safety job.

With no immediate plans to move Sheldon Brown to safety, Hagg and Usama Young each have a chance to start. Young is running with the second team defense after starting eight games last season. The Browns also signed UDFAs Tashaun Gipson and Johnson Bademosi as secondary depth.

Browns S Eric Hagg is working as the first-team free safety in OTAs.

Usama Young is running with the second team after starting eight games in 2011. A seventh-round pick last season, Hagg appeared in only 10 games, notching 11 tackles.

Browns rookie S Eric Hagg left Thursday's game in the second quarter and did not return.

The Browns were already short-handed at safety with T.J. Ward (foot) out. As long as the eye injury isn't serious, Hagg should be available in Week 15 after 10 days of rest.

Browns rookie S Eric Hagg has finally recovered from August knee surgery and has a chance to start in Week 10.

The Browns are dealing with injuries to T.J. Ward and Usama Young. Hagg was kept on the roster for the first nine weeks of the season, half of August, and all of September, which suggests the team is high on his potential. He was a versatile playmaker at Nebraska, playing all over the Cornhuskers' secondary and leading the team with five interceptions as a senior.

Browns rookie S Eric Hagg will undergo "minor" surgery on his left knee this week.

Hagg was inactive for the exhibition opener against the Packers, and may now be in line to miss the entire preseason. A seventh-round pick out of Nebraska, Hagg is expected to be a reserve safety and special teamer when he returns.

Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron envisions seventh-round rookie Eric Hagg as a versatile safety/nickel back.

"He played in their nickel package and in their dime sub-package," Jauron said of Hagg at Nebraska. "We think he can play some safety too, probably either one, free or strong." For now, we're penciling in Hagg as T.J. Ward's primary backup at free safety. If he picks up the defense before the season, it's possible Hagg could battle for the starting strong safety job.

Browns selected Nebraska S Eric Hagg with the No. 248 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

The Cornhuskers' 2010 secondary produced three draft picks (also Prince Amukamara, DeJon Gomes), and Hagg led the unit in interceptions with five this past season. Versatile, Hagg played nickel back throughout his career, not necessarily corner or safety. At 6'1/206 with mid-4.6s speed, though, his most likely position is somewhere "inside," be it covering slot receivers or tight ends. Hagg was also voted the Huskers' 2010 Defensive MVP over big names such as Amukamara, Pierre Allen, and Jared Crick.
