Should the Cleveland Browns trade Joe Haden? | The Tylt
The Cleveland Browns are reportedly shopping around star cornerback Joe Haden. While Haden has been a star for the Browns, Cleveland needs to shed his contract for salary cap relief and build towards the future. Still, the team needs a veteran leader, and a player as talented as Haden should not be let go. Should the Browns ship Haden? 🏾 🏈
Should the Cleveland Browns trade Joe Haden?
The Cleveland Browns are "aggressively" looking to Haden, and start the rebuilding process. Should they be shopping him around?
As much as Haden has become a part of the city of Cleveland, it's time for the Browns to do Haden a solid and trade him. The team is obviously in transition, and need to rebuild from the ground up. Haden shouldn't spend the last good years of his career on another losing team with no chance at the playoffs.
Aside from doing him a favor, Haden has lost a step due to injuries that have plagued him in the past two season. The Browns would be doing themselves a favor by not risking another year where Haden potentially gets hurt, and their money goes to waste. It would be better for everyone if the team dumped his salary, and looked to the future.
Joe Haden has lost a step or 12.— McNeil (@Reflog_18) August 22, 2017
Haden is a leader, and the most talented cornerback on the Cleveland Browns. The team just can't give him up because it wants to start rebuilding. Let this man play out his contract with the team that drafted him, and for the city that fell in love with him.
Haden has had injury trouble the past couple seasons, but he appears even more motivated before to prove he hasn't lost a step. It's that kind of heart, and grit the Browns need as they bring in younger players who may be the future of the franchise. If the organization deals Haden, the Browns' defense will be a rudderless ship with no one to lead the team in what it means to be a professional in the NFL. He may have lost a step, but his impact on the team extends beyond numbers. Cleveland needs Haden to be on the team.
I don't get why the Browns are trying to move Joe Haden. One of the defensive leaders. See how he does in new scheme before saying bye.— Damon Kecman (@DownWithDamon) August 29, 2017
