BEREA -- Joe Hadens odd training camp of discontent continued Wednesday. On the last day of camp, Haden was tossed off the practice field by coach Pat Shurmur for being too rough. The ejection included an in-your-face discussion with Shurmur that had the coach using expletives. Im not gonna talk about it, Shurmur said Wednesday when practice ended. He pointed out he respected Haden, then added: If you want details, youre going to have to find it on Twitter. He then apologized that fans heard bad language. When a followup question was asked, Shurmur barked: Dont ask. Thats between me and the player, he said. Joes a great competitor and I appreciate what he does and who he is. Im not talking about it anymore. Youll have to go somewhere else to find out. At about the same time, team president Mike Holmgren told STO Haden had been tossed for over-aggressiveness in practice, and that Haden had been warned to tone it down. Hadens sin: He knocked rookie Travis Benjamin to the ground in a red zone drill when the players were not practicing in pads. While that may sound silly -- a coach getting upset about a player being physical -- its the new rage in the NFL not to hit or knock guys to the ground in practice. Coaches want to avoid injury, and they see no hitting as a way to help. I think its important that we practice smart, Shurmur said. You have to be able to practice at game speed (without tackling). I want all of our guys to make it to the horse race. Everything I do, all my thoughts, revolve around our players and our team. I told the guys that. Hadens teammates shrugged it off. "Boys will be boys," Josh Cribbs said. "It's football. That's the nature of football and we love it. They hug and they make up and it's no problem. Boys will be boys and coaches will be coaches. Shurmur had to defuse the situation. We have to give coach our all and Joe does that as well." With many teams, incidents like this come and go, as training camp often leads to scuffles. Steelers defensive back Ike Taylor and wide receiver Antonio Brown had to hear a lecture from GM Kevin Colbert after they came to blows in practice last week. The two then went out and scored touchdowns in the next preseason game. Its not that common, though, that anything happens with a head coach. Haden is reportedly facing a four-game suspension from the league for testing positive in the offseason for Adderall, a stimulant on the leagues banned list. The Browns have not heard anything about a suspension for Haden, and hey are not allowed to comment on it. Haden has not denied the report, saying only it was a league matter. He has continued in camp and performed very well. Presumably Wednesdays discussion was not an Adderall-addled event, but when a player might miss four games anything he does draws a little more attention. Especially since Haden has made himself into a self-styled celebrity in win-starved Cleveland. When camp ended, many of the Browns went immediately to the fans to sign autographs, which they did for an extended time. Haden, one of the teams more popular players, was not among them. Thus did the Browns training camp come to a conclusion.
