Haden, an emotional leader for the Browns, brings more than just strong shutdown play to the field for the Browns. He brings several intangibles that, when missing, can create noticable holes in a team's defense.
While Haden will not solve all the problems that exist within the Browns defense by himself, his presence makes the Browns defense legitimately dangerous.
He brings an ability to change the tide of a game with one play as well as the skill to force teams to rethink who they lineup where come Sunday afternoon.
Getting Joe Haden back from suspension bolsters a defense that has struggled greatly at times early in the season. The Browns defense will not be shutting anyone out anytime soon, but Haden makes them a defense that teams need to be careful not to overlook.
