Berea, OH (AP) - Cleveland Browns rookie cornerback Joe Haden
said embattled Auburn quarterback Cam Newton isn't worried about
the allegations being leveled against him.

Haden lived with Newton for 1 1/2 years and considers his former
roommate his best friend. Haden spoke to the Heisman Trophy hopeful
on the phone for an hour on Tuesday night. Haden said Newton, who
has been accused of cheating while he was with the Gators, "is not
letting this stuff get to him too much. He said, 'Joe, I got a plan
and everything is going to work out for the best."'

Newton and his father have also been accused of asking a
Mississippi State recruiter for money to play at that school.

Haden believes Newton is only being targeted because he's
playing so well this season for the No. 2 Tigers.
