Michael Garcia - September 12, 2012
Cleveland Brown star cornerback Joe Haden was suspended for four games, effective immediately, for a violation of the NFL performance enhancing substances policy. According to reports, Haden tested positive for Adderall during the offseason.
Adderall, of course, is a drug to combat the symptoms of ADHD. Haden could filed a Therapeutic Use Exemption, but apparently didn't. Haden reportedly failed a test in July. I don't see how his performance was being enhanced in July by taking what is basically speed, unless you have ADHD.
Doesn't matter, the drug is on the NFL's banned list and he got caught with it and is out for the next four games. Haden had one of the Browns' four interceptions on Sunday against the Eagles and Michael Vick. The Eagles won the game 17-16.
