CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Cornerback Joe Haden wished to go to a place where he felt wanted and had a chance to make the playoffs.

He believes he’s found both with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The 28-year-old Haden joined the Steelers for their preseason game Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers, but did not play after signing a three-year, $27 million contract the day before. He beamed with delight talking about his new team.
