As first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns will be featured on the upcoming 13th season of HBO's Hard Knocks. Another theme will be the likely quarterback competition between veteran Tyrod Taylor and No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, who seems to have the ideal brash personality for the show.

Dorsey said last month the Browns saw no merit in being part of the documentary series.

"I don't think there's anything good that comes out of Hard Knocks, but we'll see", Dorsey told Cleveland radio station WKNR earlier in May.

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. "I want people to see how much our players and coaches care, how hard they work and how badly they want to win for Cleveland", he said.


Honestly, now we have to sit and watch these shows where we have to sit and listen to a coach's pep talks when he was a flame out in Oakland with the Raiders and he's won one game in his two years with the Browns. There's the obvious intrigue about Mayfield, Jackson's tenuous hold on his job, and whether an organization with two winning seasons in almost two decades can finally turn things around. 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. Williams appeared on the program in 2017 during his time with the Los Angeles Rams.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were featured past year.

HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE CLEVELAND BROWNS will be narrated by Liev Schreiber. "The massive scope, meticulous editing and time-hopping special effects that highlight a production under massive time constraints are all impressive, but it's the film crew's access to National Football League players that makes the program special".
