Report: Browns’ Joe Haden fails drug test, faces four-game suspension
This hasn’t been the greatest day in Cleveland Browns history.
First, there are reports of running back Trent Richardson’s knee problems and now ESPN.com is reporting that cornerback Joe Haden failed a drug test and is subject to be suspended four games by the NFL.
The NFL is currently reviewing a failed drug test from Haden.
If Haden is suspended, it would cost him more than $1.356 million in salary.
Apparently, talk of Haden failing a drug test and facing a suspension is news to Haden’s advisors and the Browns.
Haden’s manager, Sean Cabble said, “I am unaware of any situation like that.”
Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis responded by saying, “Don’t know anything about that. Can’t confirm.”
And of course, a NFL spokesman said, “We have no comment.”
Haden, who will enter his 3rd season, had 65 tackles and one interception last season.
