Because they have not been on the show in the last 10 years, haven’t changed coaches and didn’t make the playoffs the last two seasons, the Browns are one of six NFL teams that can be compelled to appear on Hard Knocks this summer.
General Manager John Dorsey said he’ll be OK with any decision that the league might make, but it sounds like he’d prefer if they chose someone else for a starring role on the HBO series chronicling training camp.

Sometimes the good moments make it worth putting up with the bad to do what you love, Davis says.
The unfortunate reality of NFL cheerleading is that there are a lot more bad moments than there are good.

That was right after I said that I thought the pick was probably going to be Bradley Chubb, by the way.
