HBO Hard Knocks To Decide On Team By End Of May

The Atlanta Falcons turned down the offer to be on the HBO series "Hard Knocks" back in April, but the show is hoping to be able to decide on a team for the series by the end of the month of May, according to a report out of the New York Daily News.

HBO would like to have a team in place by the end of the month to give the network time to prepare for promos at minicamp. The filming takes place during training camp. The Jets minicamp takes place June 12-14.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have volunteered to be on the show, but HBO is said to still be looking at the New York Jets to appear on the program again. Jets owner Woody Johnson has expressed interest in the show, but both the Jets general manager and head coach have let it be known they're not too keen on doing the show again, given the locker room situation the Jets dealt with last year.
