HBO Hard Knocks: Dolphins Were The Lone Team Offered The Show

The Miami Dolphins are gearing up for training camp in August, ready to have dozens of cameras watching their every move as they are the feature team on HBO's Hard Knocks show.

According to NFL Films senior coordinating producer Ross Ketover, the Dolphins were the only team in the entire league to be offered the show.

We cast a wide net. We talk to a lot of teams to gauge their interest. Some are very interested. Some are interested with caveats that are not acceptable with us. Others say we'll do it in future years. Others are not interested. The fact of the matter is, despite what you read, we did not offer the show to any other team but the Dolphins.

Hard Knocks should be an interesting show regardless this year because of everything that is new about this franchise. From new head coach Joe Philbin to rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, there is a lot that can make for interesting television.
