New York Jets Not On 'Hard Knocks' Again? HBO Leaning Toward Atlanta Falcons, According To Report

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson said the club benefited from being on "Hard Knocks" and that he would like the chance again this season, but it appears the hit HBO show on NFL training camps will go in another direction.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports that the Atlanta Falcons are emerging as a front-runner for the show, although an HBO spokesperson refused comment, citing that it's against company policy to discuss potential candidates during the selection process.

The Jets were the entertaining focus of "Hard Knocks" in 2010 -- and with Tim Tebow now wearing green and white, it would seem they would be very attractive to HBO yet again.

But even if HBO does want the Jets to appear on the show for a second season, it's unclear whether coach Rex Ryan would appreciate the offer.
