PLAYERS: Joe Haden
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
Joe has really stepped up his game from a football stand point, and what he has done from taking on a leadership role with the other guys, he has really embraced that. The biggest thing is he is setting an example. He is focused on the coaching he is getting from [defensive coordinator] Ray [Horton], [defensive backs coach] Louie [Cioffi] and [assistant defensive backs coach] Bobby [Babich]. He is going out on a daily basis and applying those things on the field. That is leadership by example. I see him grabbing guys on the side and helping them out with some of their things. You see a young player that is going from being a guy who is just trying to make sure he is okay to doing that plus taking the extra steps to help out other guys. That’s huge and that’s huge in the development of our young team. — Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski on cornerback Joe Haden. Haden, a perennial hopeful for the Pro Bowl, has quietly been having one of the best training camps of the Cleveland Browns. As reported earlier this week, Haden, despite his glitz and glam, has ditched the trash talking and taken on a leadership role with the rest of the team’s defense. With his four-game suspension from 2012 in the rear view mirror, 2013 should be the season that the 24-year old finally steps up as one of the NFL’s elite cornerbacks.
