CB Joe Haden may be suspended for drug issues

Published reports say Cleveland Browns player Joe Haden has failed a drug test. Haden, 23, is a cornerback for the team.

Citing multiple sources, ESPN Cleveland says that the NFL is currently reviewing a failed drug test by the third-year player. This failed drug test could result in a four game suspension, without pay, for Haden.

One source told ESPN Cleveland that Haden tested positive for Adderall during a routine offseason drug test. Though Adderall is used to treat ADD, the NFL classifies it as a "stimulant," and it is on the NFL's list of banned substances.
