Browns CB Haden a shut down guy

Posted by Chris Brown on October 1, 2013 – 8:15 am

The Cleveland defense is a unit that is probably better than that of Baltimore right now. There are a lot of top draft choices on that side of the ball for the Browns, including top CB Joe Haden, who effectively shut down Cincinnati’s A.J. Green Sunday in a 17-6 win over the Bengals.

Haden was assigned to cover Green the entire game. The Bengals top receiver was targeted 15 times in the game. By game’s end he had seven catches for 51 yards, with his longest reception going for just 16.

It will be interesting to see if Haden is matched up on Stevie Johnson in the slot, knowing Haden is primarily a boundary cornerback.
