Joe Haden absent at start of Browns camp

BEREA — Cornerback Joe Haden, the No. 7 overall pick, wasn’t on hand Saturday morning when the Browns began training camp. Haden is the team’s only rookie unsigned.

Haden flew into Cleveland on Thursday, according to his Twitter account, so he could join practice soon after he signs. That could mean the second practice Saturday night at 5:45 p.m.

The No. 4, 5 and 8 picks have agreed to deals, so negotiations shouldn’t be too difficult. Agent Malik Shareef didn’t return a message.

CHECK BACK SATURDAY FOR MORE COVERAGE FROM CAMP.
