HBO’s popular series Hard Knocks is must watch television for the casual Football Fan. The Oakland Raiders being the featured team makes it an absolute must watch. The Raiders are not shy of, let’s just say, big personalities. Antonio Brown making his appearance to Training Camp on a hot-air balloon tells you all you need to know about him. Then you have Richie Incognito and Vontaze Burfict. Both players known for their distinguished play styles.
Rookie RB Josh Jacobs though is avoiding the spotlight all together. Athletes tend to either embrace the attention or hide to get away from it. Jacobs is electing to hide from it. In a recent Tweet. Jacobs confesses his sins.
If you wondering why I’m not on hardknocks it’s because I be hiding from them 😂😂😂— Josh Jacobs (@iAM_JoshJacobs) August 14, 2019
In a league where players every move are being criticized. It is rather smart for the rookie to be avoiding Hard Knocks. Sometimes, the best publicity is no publicity. Marshawn Lynch would be proud.
Josh Jacobs is expected to play a big role in the Raiders offense this season. You’ll hear about him on the field, not on HBO.
