Dolphins Players Could Cash In On HBO's Hard Knocks

The Miami Dolphins are preparing to deal with the distraction that could be with HBO's Hard Knocks. However, some of the Dolphins players could get a little extra money for the time with a little bit of product placement, according to Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk.

Even undrafted rookie tight end Les Brown (who could be an attractive storyline since he's giving up a career in finance to chase his NFL opportunity) said he's fielded calls from "a few companies." But running back Daniel Thomas said: "I haven't heard anything. Must be a quarterback thing." The Dolphins passers won't be nearly as popular as Chad Ochocinco or Reggie Bush, however.

The Dolphins are also thinking about putting a special three-and-a-half by four-and-a-half advertising patch on their practice jerseys, though the league limits how much the players can turn themselves in a human billboard.

Despite that, the best opportunity for most players will be to wear a shirt or some kind of equipment with the company's logo and hope that the HBO cameras will catch them.
