Jaguars Still In Contention For HBO Series Hard Knocks

HBO still doesn't have a team to feature in their annual Summertime right of passage Hard Knocks, and the Jaguars are still in contention. Pro Football Talk reports that HBO is still considering Jacksonville, though it seems that they would only pick them reluctantly.

HBO would likely prefer just about any other team to Jacksonville, which doesn’t have a big fan base and doesn’t have a particularly compelling cast of characters heading into training camp. A Maurice Jones-Drew contract dispute could make for an interesting storyline, and there are questions about whether new coach Mike Mularkey will stand by his vow to start Blaine Gabbert over Chad Henne, but this year’s Jaguars don’t appear to be anywhere near as entertaining a Hard Knocks choice as the 2010 Jets, who were the gold standard for turning the training camp reality show into must-see TV.

So far the Falcons, 49ers, Redskins, Jets and Texans have publicly said that they don't want to be part of the show. We don't know how many have turned the show down behind closed doors.
