Several NFL teams have rejected HBO’s Hard Knocks

HBO’s Hard Knocks didn’t air last year because of the lockout, and now, the documentary reality series isn’t finding teams willing to be followed by its cameras.

The Seattle Seahawks, “the Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins have either declined or, like the Seahawks, stated a lack of interest in appearing in the program ahead of an offer,” NFL.com reports.

There is still time for a team to get on board. However, the series, produced by NFL Films, hasn’t aired a season every year since its 2001 debut.
