Browns Release A Fan Favorite, And One Other Thing...

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

So some surprising moves today as the Cleveland Browns have released longtime fan-favorite and former 1st round pick Joe Haden. In other news (which happened while I was recording and thus I don’t get into at all) Cameron Erving was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs today as well, and this coming after yesterday’s speculation that the team was trying to move both players.

I’ll elucidate my full thoughts on Erving at some point down the road (probably tomorrow’s after-game ‘cast) but suffice it to say Ray Farmer closes the book one out of four in 1st round tries, with full confirmation on Danny Shelton still somewhat pending. It’s unfortunate for yet another 1st round pick to not work out, but we did acquire a 5th rounder in the process which is what we got for Barkevious Mingo last year.

However this ‘cast is not about Erving, but rather about Haden. We look at his total career in Cleveland, which was mostly really good. Also get into the logistics of this move, what it says about the confidence in the cornerbacks we currently have on the roster, and what that now looks like.

Also, is there perhaps a psychology that can effect a player after years and years of constant losing? Could some of that possibly be at play here? All that and...something else at the end. We’re a year old now :)
