Jets owner OK with 'Hard Knocks' redux; GM changes stance

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson said Monday he would consider having his team appear on HBO's "Hard Knocks" again. His general manager didn't share that sentiment, then apparently changed his mind.

"We've done that," Mike Tannenbaum told SiriusXM Radio two weeks ago, according to the New York Post. "It was a good experience. I'm glad we did it. I'm looking forward to watching another team on it this year."

Tannenbaum clarified his comment in a statement issued Monday night by the team.

"When I made that comment, I never had an expectation that we'd be asked to do it again," Tannenbaum said. "Obviously, if we're asked, we'll sit down and talk about it."

Johnson told The Star-Ledger earlier Monday he certainly would consider the opportunity to be on the show, as the Jets were in 2010.

"We have yet to receive a formal invitation," Johnson said. "When we do, we will take a look at it."
