CLEVELAND - During Joe Haden's four-game suspension, the Browns cornerback focused on his personal life. He got engaged.
On Monday, Haden spoke to the media about being suspended after testing positive for Adderall and briefly mentioned his engagement. But he took to Instagram a week ago, to tell his loyal following.
"I love u with all my heart! U been my rock threw the good and the bad! We r so blessed and im so happy 2 make u mine 4ever," he wrote. Haden posted a photo of the giant rock on now-fiancée Sarah's finger.
Haden was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Since then, he has become a fan favorite, both on and off the field, while strengthening the team's secondary.
In May, the 23-year-old took an Independence High School student to prom after she asked him on Twitter. Haden, who missed his own high school prom, picked Joyce Grendel up in a white Lamborghini with suicide doors.
