Cameron Brate has a Hard Knocks hack

Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate went to Harvard. Which means he’s smart. Which means he figured out a way to get his wish to not be featured last year on Hard Knocks.

“I figured out if you wave [at the cameras], they won’t put that on, ever,” Brate recently told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via JoeBucsFan.com. “So you have to start waving at the cameras.”

James Harrison never tried that one. While with the Bengals, he routinely drew the attention of the cameras because he made it clear he wasn’t interested in being videotaped by them, waving at times with one finger instead of his whole hand.

Browns players should take note regarding Brate’s advice, if they hope to avoid the cameras when training camp opens. Before they make a decision, they should consider Brate’s assessment of the extent to which the experience was a distraction.

“I really didn’t think it was too invasive,” Brate said. “I mean, there are always cameras on while we are playing. I feel like they are always watching anyway. I feel like some of the guys maybe could have hammed it up too much for the cameras. Whatever, that’s there choice. For me, I didn’t see it as a distraction for the majority of the team, no.”

For the Browns, the extra scrutiny will come in handy if/when the team ever becomes good enough to attraction a national spotlight. Which could happen as soon as this year. In theory.

    Lol thanks for the laugh. Won’t happen ever while con man Haslam owns the team. He’s happily scamming Browns fans along while depositing his big, fat TV revenue checks knowing he never has to field a winning product for that money to keep coming.

    Not necessarily. Obama went after, by his own admission, having poor high school grades. How he managed that is something the media didn’t dare to ask.

  3. Never get coaches and players acting like the media and benign shows like Hard Knocks are the enemy. Let’s be real, these are all Narcissistic people, from the superstars to the practice squad guys. So why you are acting like what you crave is harming you is beyond me.

  4. Yea. That’s the ticket. Waving you middle finger at the cameras showing your IQ. Respect is a two way street. Try it once in a while.

    Did you read the article? There is no mention of a middle finger being waved.

    The Cleveland Browns are already in the national spotlight. This article is proof.
