Browns Cornerback Joe Haden denies young Steelers fan autograph

While the Steelers and Browns have a rivalry on the field, Haden maintains the rivalry off the field as well.

The Steelers, Browns rivalry is serious business to Browns cornerback Joe Haden.

At the Good Games Athletics' Camp Haden in northeast Ohio, a young Steelers fan approached Haden with a black sharpie pen and asked Haden to sign the jersey of former Steeler Hines Ward. Haden's response? "No way!" in the video below.

In a second video post, the camper and his dad wished Haden good luck in the 14 games that the Browns don't play the Steelers.

Haden, who made his first Pro Bowl in 2013, was one of the few bright spots for the Browns last season.

However, even with the season he had, Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown still seemed to get the best of Haden in both of the matchups. In the two games in which Haden followed Brown around the field, Brown had 15 receptions for 179 yards and one touchdown.

Judging by his actions at his football camp at Brush high school, the success Brown achieved left a bad taste in Haden's mouth. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for the kid, Haden's seriousness with the rivalry he has with Browns and the Steelers translated to the young camper who now doesn't have a Joe Haden autograph on a Hines Ward jersey.
