The first episode of HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cleveland Browns’ doesn’t air until August 7, but the team has already created enough buzz in the last few days to make it must-see television.
Well, it just got even weirder.
If that wasn’t enough, offseason acquisition quarterback Tyrod Taylor and 2017 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, have acquired an RV and parked it on the premises of the Browns’ training camp, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
Renting an RV? Making it a secret clubhouse? Only allowing quarterbacks inside? Not telling anyone what is going on?
This is rich.
The only thing missing is the name, which there is no doubt that will come to light sooner rather than later.
This is rather refreshing to see and definitely shouldn’t be a cause of concern for the Browns not taking life too seriously these days.
After all, when you were the second team in NFL history to go a winless 0-16 in 2017, there is no place to go but up.
This is just all in good fun for head coach Hue Jackson’s squad.
With Taylor and Mayfield battling for the starting quarterback role, a host of running backs in Carols Hyde, Duke Johnson, and rookie Nick Chubb, and a talented wide receiving corps headlined by Landry and Josh Gordon, there is plenty of storylines to follow on the gridiron alone heading into the 2018 NFL season.
So get your popcorn ready and don’t touch the remote in a few days because this team clearly has some personalities and has already proven it is worth following.
