New Browns QB Baker Mayfield Excited About Team Being on ‘Hard Knocks’

Baker Mayfield has already been the star of a nine-part pre-draft series called Behind Baker, and now he’s eager for HBO’s Hard Knocks to pull back the curtain again on what’s in Front of Baker during training camp, Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reports.

“For me looking at it, and us as a team, I’d say it can be good if you handle it right,” he told Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan of Sirius XM NFL radio from the NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles. “If you think about it as a way to get on camera and try to show off and do certain things and handle it the wrong way then that can be very negative, it can be a distraction. But if you use it as a sense of, ‘OK, I got to block out everything else and just focus on playing ball,’ then that can be a great thing for us.”

Mayfield believes that Hard Knocks can help prepare the Browns for the some of the adversity they’ll face during the season.

“Having people within our practices, within our training camp, right there trying to, not like they’re trying to distract us, but they’re there,” he said. “You could worry about it, you could think about it, but if you’re able to focus in, that can be a beneficial thing for us, talking about going into away stadiums and going into environments where you have to focus on doing your job, so I’m looking forward it.”

“I know my family is probably looking forward to it as well to be able to get to see practice and what’s going on since they won’t be able to see it there firsthand in person.”
