Found August 09, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
PLAYERS: Joe Haden
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns

Browns CB Joe Haden wouldn’t make any comments about his reported failed drug test, or the possibility of a suspension or appeal-

“I can’t comment on it at all. Anything involving the situation, I’m not going to talk about.”

He did go on record to say the following-

Haden is certainly within his rights not to discuss the matter until the matter has finished. In fact, he absolutely should NOT talk about it until he and the league sort it out.
