The Cleveland Browns went 0-16 in 2017. Now, as they try to bounce back from one of the worst seasons in NFL history, their training camp will be chronicled by HBO as they will be featured on “Hard Knocks,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
That means fans can see quite a few former SEC standouts who now play for the Browns up close and personal this summer on the documentary series.
Former Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway and former Georgia running back Nick Chubb were both selected by Cleveland during the 2018 NFL Draft, so fans will see that duo’s first training camp in their professional careers.
Other former SEC standouts who will be featured on the show include former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, and former LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who was traded from the Dolphins to the Browns this offseason.
The Browns will be the 11th different NFL team to be featured on “Hard Knocks.” This year’s series debuts Tuesday, Aug. 7 at 10 p.m. ET, per Schefter.
Here are all of the players who went to an SEC school listed on the Browns’ current roster:
