Browns to appear on HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

Hard Knocks 2018: Cleveland Browns to be featured on HBO show, Baker Mayfield likely to be highlight

Report: Browns Selected as Featured Team for 2018 Season of 'Hard Knocks'

Despite annually finishing among the worst teams in the NFL, Cleveland has some intrigue entering 2018's season after selecting Baker Mayfield No. 1 overall and completely overhauling its roster.

Hard Knocks, which debuted in 2001, is a reality show that follows National Football League teams throughout training camp leading up to the regular season. Another theme will be the likely quarterback competition between veteran Tyrod Taylor and No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, who seems to have the flawless brash personality for the show.

The Browns are one of the more interesting teams in the league.

Hard Knocks is headed to Cleveland.

The Browns have turned down previous opportunities to be on the award-winning series.

In addition, head coach Hue Jackson has appeared on the series before when he was with Cincinnati, and is normally good for a sound-byte or two.

Dorsey, in his first season as Browns' GM, chimed in last month on Browns radio partner ESPN Cleveland, saying he doesn't think "anything good" comes from appearing on the show.

"I've been a part of Hard Knocks and when you experience it first hand, you come to appreciate the inside look it really gives fans", Jackson said in a statement. But after talking about it as an organization, he feels much better about the situation.

Victor of 16 Sports Emmy (R) Awards to date, HARD KNOCKS launched with the Baltimore Ravens in 2001, followed by the Dallas Cowboys in 2002, and resumed in 2007 with the Kansas City Chiefs, subsequently spotlighting the Cowboys (2008), Cincinnati Bengals (2009), New York Jets (2010), Miami Dolphins (2012), Bengals (2013), Atlanta Falcons (2014), Houston Texans (2015) and Los Angeles Rams (2016).

Jackson and Dorsey can take heart in the fact that six of the last eight teams featured on the show equaled or improved their win-loss record that season.

Cleveland is the 13th franchise to participate in "Hard Knocks", which began in 2001 with the Baltimore Ravens.
