Can’t get enough Baker Mayfield? Well then, do I have some news for you. HBO officially announced on Thursday that the network is selecting the Cleveland Browns to feature on the latest season of the sports documentary show Hard Knocks.
OFFICIAL: @HBO’s Hard Knocks is coming to Cleveland

Baker is no stranger to behind-the-scenes documentary filmmaking. Mayfield extensively filmed his life leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft for his own online show, Behind Baker. The No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Mayfield will no doubt be one of Hard Knocks’ stars this season.
The reasons to pick the Browns are obvious. Cleveland has completely overhauled its team in an effort to rebuild from an 0-16 season in 2017. Now, they have a charismatic (and often controversial) young quarterback taking center stage.
The news sparked a round of reactions on Twitter, and there seems to be a lot of excitement about Baker Mayfield taking his talents to HBO:

In the end, Baker Mayfield could be the hottest thing to hit HBO since Daenerys Targaryen. Hard Knocks’ 13th season is expected to premiere in August.
