The irony of the Cleveland Browns brain trust choosing this season to appear on Hard Knocks is impossible to ignore. Following years of pursuit by NFL Films, the Browns felt they had nowhere to go but up from this points.
“We have been asked multiple times about being featured on Hard Knocks, and we really felt like it was our turn this year and the timing was right,” said Cleveland Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam. “We want to be great partners in this league, and we also recognize Hard Knocks gives fans a special opportunity to learn more about our team and players.”
Expect much of Hard Knocks to shine the camera on Baker Mayfield, the Browns number one pick at quarterback and hopeful herald into a new age of winning.
Even Mayfield comes with baggage from his time at Oklahoma, and he’s been tasked with reverting a trend of pitiful starting quarterbacks in Cleveland that literally goes back to Bernie Kosar.
Hard Knocks began in 2001. Tonight’s season premiere is the first of five episodes that will go inside the Cleveland Browns training camp with censorship thrown out the window. There’s a reason it airs so late; make sure the kids are in bed.
Episode 2 of Hard Knocks premieres Tuesday, August 14th at 10/9c exclusively on HBO.
