The Houston Texans have become the latest to decline an opportunity to appear on HBO's "Hard Knocks", John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

While the team has not commented on the matter, McClain notes that head coach Gary Kubiak values his privacy and would not comfortable with cameras in his office. Coming off the first playoff appearance in franchise history and wanting to avoid distractions may be another factor in the decision to not pursue the national attention that comes with appearing on the popular series, which is having a difficult time finding a willing subject.

Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips may have provided some first-hand insight into the presence of camera crews as he was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, who were featured on the 2008 version of the series. The Cowboys went 9-7 and finished in third place in the NFC East that season.

The Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets, Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins have either declined or publicly stated a lack of interest in appearing in the program. San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York tweeted out that his team can be crossed off the list of candidates, as well.
