Cleveland Browns will take center stage on HBO's 'Hard Knocks,' per reports

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'

The Browns and 49ers were in the conversation for "Hard Knocks" because league rules stipulate that a team is eligible to be selected - either voluntarily or by mandate - if it hasn't appeared on the show in the last 10 years, hasn't reached the playoffs the last two seasons, or didn't just hire a new coach.

Instead, NFL Films and HBO will follow the Browns this summer, ensuring that the "quarterback competition" between Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield will be overdramatized (Taylor will be the Week 1 starter).

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

Not to mention the fact that no fan base in America has experienced "hard knocks" with the degree of ferocity and regularity that Browns fans have.

Whether Dorsey actually believes this is another matter but Ken Carman of 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland legitimately feels this is the ideal time for the Browns to be on the national stage.

Jackson was the running backs coach in Cincinnati when the Bengals were on "Hard Knocks", so he will be able to prepare his players for what to expect. But after talking about it as an organization, he feels much better about the situation. "Hue and I both feel like this team is in a good place and that we are in the process of building something that will lead to success". Camera and sound crews will have total access to players' and coaches' meeting rooms, training rooms, as well as living quarters and practice fields.

No other sports reality series can match the production excellence, critical acclaim, awards and audience numbers posted by HARD KNOCKS, which has produced 62 memorable episodes and one anniversary special in its first 12 seasons. Williams appeared on the program in 2017 during his time with the Los Angeles Rams.

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

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.
