Browns' Haden has matured into elite cornerback

Posted: Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns cornerback Joe Haden has settled down, and in doing so, elevated his game.

Haden credits his marriage last summer to his longtime girlfriend, Sarah, for making him a better person and player. Haden says he has grown up and is focused on "just football now, all football."

In his fourth season, Haden has moved himself into a class with the NFL's top defensive backs. Last week, he intercepted two passes, returning one for a touchdown while holding Cincinnati star wide receiver A.J. Green to just two catches for 7 yards.

Haden has a laminated map of Hawaiian Islands taped to his locker, motivation to make his first Pro Bowl.

Haden said a four-game suspension last year for using Adderrall prompted a change in his lifestyle and led to his metamorphosis.
