Hard Knocks Raiders 2019 Preview
Last year the Cleveland Browns Hard Knocks episodes brought a lot of drama and excitement with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield showing glimpses of how his rookie season would play out.
The Raiders have animated head coach Jon Gruden coaching new acquisition wide receiver Antonio Brown, who’s quite the character himself. Those two alone should provide an ample dose of drama in camp.
Expect tensions to run high as the Raiders try to build a winning attitude following last season’s dismal 4-12 record. Gruden especially will be under the microscope to help turn the team’s fortunes around.
