Ray Farmer says the Cleveland Browns are not trading Joe Haden

Haden2It really is the silly season. I had no idea that the Browns would have to make such a ludicrous statement today until they did. Alas, Ray Farmer has told the beat reporters that the Browns will not be trading Joe Haden.

This is apparently in response to a tweet that Joe Haden sent last night simply said, “it’s a crazy business.” That was all that needed to be said, I guess. The rumors started flying and people’s imaginations must have gotten away from them. Then, a fake twitter account for Mary Kay Cabot tweeted that Haden had been traded for DeSean Jackson. Yes, there’s a fake twitter account for Mary Kay.

Regardless, rest easy Browns fans. Joe Haden is not being traded.

At least not yet.

    Hahaha, nice! You are already mostly prepared for the inevitable “Waterworld” scenario… but will you be Dennis Hopper or Kevin Costner?

  • mgbode

    you have to ask if I’m crazy enough to drop a flare into a fuel tank?

    (I will never get back the 3 hours of my life that I spent watching that movie, so I might as well use them)

  • Pat Leonard

    I very much do believe you are that type of person.

    Let the record show that I not only watched the movie more than once, but I also read the book that was adapted from the screenplay. There’s something very wrong with me.

  • mgbode

    Anytime a movie is good enough that they write a book based on it, it’s gotta be good (or is it the other way around?).

    I bet you saw “The Postman” too! I did, lol. I can’t wait for “Draft Day!”

  • mgbode

    nope. one of the few benefits of not having g/f’s in high school was I missed most of those types of movies.

  • Petefranklin

    You guys are blowing this off, but why would Haden tweet that? The only logical reasons are that the Browns are lowballing him, or they sent out feelers about him. There’s something behind that tweet folks.

  • MrCleaveland

    But . . . but . . . but, a friend of mine in the real estate biz says Joe just sold his house in Strongsville.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Those types you mean post Apocalyptic?
