The documentary TV show, which started in 2001, follows one National Football League team through training camp.
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. "This will be a great opportunity for our team".
"I don't think there's anything good that comes out of Hard Knocks, but we'll see", Dorsey said. "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".
Six teams were eligible this year, and the network apparently chose Cleveland over San Francisco, Denver, San Diego, Baltimore and Washington.
The Browns have turned down previous opportunities to be on the award-winning series. Williams appeared on the program in 2017 during his time with the Los Angeles Rams.
The Browns were outscored by almost 200 points last season while joining the 2008 Lions as the only teams to complete a season 0-16. Teams who have recently earned playoff berths immediately following their appearance on HARD KNOCKS include the Bengals (2009, 2013), Jets (2010) and Houston Texans (2015). Now they're going to be on HBO's "Hard Knocks", too, a league source confirmed. The program's film crew is set to descend on the team's training camp this summer, with plans to shoot thousands of hours worth of behind-the-scenes footage.
