One of the best parts of social media is that it can bring fans into the worlds of professional athletes. One of the worst parts of social media is that it can bring fans into the worlds of professional athletes.

Either way, social media helps the 24/7 news cycle that has been made possible by smartphones and constant access to information. It leads to more conversations, more thoughts and more ‘what ifs’ than ever before but, now, on a more wide-reaching scale.

Former Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden used Instagram Wednesday night and started a conversation for Cleveland Browns fans. Via his IG story, Haden seems to be hinting at a reunion with the team:

Cleveland released the then-28-year-old cornerback after seven seasons with the team. Haden latched on quickly with the rival Pittsburgh Steelers where he enjoyed five more seasons.

At 32 years old, the former first-round pick is nearing the end of his career but may still have something to give the team. With Denzel Ward, Greg Newsome II and Greedy Williams at the top of the CB depth chart, perhaps a transition to safety in returning to the Browns would make sense. John Johnson III and Grant Delpit are starters there with Ronnie Harrison returning on a one-year contract.

It is possible that Haden is just stirring the pot or had something else in mind but his post certainly has people talking.
