The decision was made by, among others, owner Arthur Blank, general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith. They were in agreement that the focus should be on football over the summer, and they didn't want anything to distract from that.
Dimitroff was non-committal when asked about the topic by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday.
"Right now, I have nothing to offer on that," Dimitroff told the newspaper. "Like all of us, we've watched it over the years, and there have been some highlights. There have been some highlights, no questions about that. It's interesting TV."
