The rumors flew Sunday night based on the tweets from one person, @G_Conley. The doubts started flying around and it appeared that the original tweeter backed off about an hour later, at least from my point of view, when he stated the following.
Love seeing the power of Twitter. I have no idea about Haden. Heard it from someone, seeing if it’s true . Wasn’t trying to get panties on a bunch. Also, Adam Sandler died.
Apparently whoever @G_Conley had as a source had some good information or some incredibly powerful powers of guessing. Today, Tony Grossi and Will Burge of ESPN Cleveland are reporting that the NFL is reviewing a failed drug test.
One source said that Haden tested positive for the prescription drug Adderall during a routine, off-season test administered in accordance with the NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.
So, as the Browns watch their first pick from the draft, Trent Richardson, fly south to get his sore knee checked while simultaneously counting the games missed by Chris Gocong, Scott Fujita and Phil Taylor, they now also potentially could be missing their best corner.
As our own Rick said in response, “That would explain why Drew Rosenhaus was at camp yesterday.”
