Browns will be featured on 'Hard Knocks'

And so fresh off a historic, dismal 0-16 season, the team has agreed to appear on HBO's popular "Hard Knocks" series, a person familiar with the decision told the Associated Press.

The league announced Thursday that Cleveland will be featured on the five-part series this year. The Hard Knocks cameras will likely key in on the rookie, whose overall personality could easily see him become one of the most compelling characters of this season.

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

Sheriff Chris Bryant said all seven dogs involved in the attack were mixed breeds, and all were under 40 pounds. An Oklahoma woman was reportedly mauled to death by her neighbor's seven small dogs.

Browns coach Hue Jackson and general John Dorsey both admitted that they weren't really ready for their Hard Knocks closeups. "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. "This will be a great opportunity for our team".

What's more, on four occasions, teams made the playoffs in the year they appeared: the Bengals (2009, 2013), Jets (2010) and Houston Texans (2015).

"Once we sat down and talked about it as an organization, I feel a lot better and understand why the time is right", said Dorsey, who has been overhauling the team since being hired in December. 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. "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".
