The 1 position each NFL team should feel great about this offseason More The free agency market has been picked down to scraps, and the 2018 NFL Draft is in the books. All that’s left is a wait through the summer months for the next NFL season to begin. Some teams still have holes in their rosters that could be problems in 2018. At the very least, every team has a weakness somewhere. But here we’ll be a little more positive.
Coming off a dismal 0-16 season, the Browns have been chosen to appear on HBO’s popular “Hard Knocks” series, which gives NFL fans a behind-the-scenes look at training camp.
The Browns have turned down previous opportunities to be on the award-winning series. But with optimism circling around Cleveland following the recent draft, and the selection of No. 1 overall pick, quarterback Baker Mayfield, the team is granting HBO unlimited access to its upcoming camp.
Although they’ve won only one game the past two seasons under coach Hue Jackson, the Browns see the show as a possibility to highlight some of their younger players and put a positive spin on their team.
Do you think the Browns are a good choice for ‘Hard Knocks?’
Now May is here – a supposed moment set aside to create a consensus – and the most resolute statement is that there will be “discussions.” Over the last year, discussions have come and gone and little has changed in this conversation.

“I’ve been in communication with Tom. I think he’s very excited about the upcoming season,” Kraft said Wednesday, per The Boston Globe. “These are voluntary workouts. I heard he’s in great shape.
“I know he’s very excited about being at minicamp and having a very special season this year.”
Kraft also pointed to Brady’s family and off-field commitments as reasons he is missing the OTAs, but reassured that the 40-year-old is excited for the 2018 season.
“I was thinking back to when he joined us, where he’s blessed to have three children now and he’s built a number of businesses and has certain responsibilities,” Kraft said. “I think it’s very hard for him to fulfill those during the season and the commitment that he has to football.”
