In what is expected to their final training camp before departing for Las Vegas, the Oakland Raiders will be under the spotlight during the 14th edition of HBO’s Emmy-winning cinema verite franchise Hard Knocks. The Raiders should provide ample entertainment as the AFC West team is headed by a pair of TV veterans: Head Coach Jon Gruden, a nine-year Monday Night Football analyst, is in the sophomore season of his second stint leading the club, while Mike Mayock, the longtime NFL Network analysts, is in his rookie run as General Manager. The club added controversial players in top wide receiver Antonio Brown and middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals knocked out the former Steelers stalwart with a helmet-to-helmet blow in a 2016 playoff game. A 30-person NFL Films crew will be in Raiders’ training camp in Napa Valley, shooting more than 1,750 hours of footage over the course of the series. The first of the five-installment Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Oakland Raiders debuts Aug 6 at 10p.
