Browns' Joe Haden making name for himself


BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns cornerback Joe Haden recently invited his Twitter followers to meet him at a sushi restaurant for lunch. His treat. More than a hundred fans showed up, and true to his word, he paid the tab.

Haden spent the winter attending Cleveland Cavaliers games dressed head-to-sneaker in the team's uniform. Haden's done it at Indians games, too.
