Jets reportedly not interested in 'Hard Knocks' encore

HBO's "Hard Knocks" series would like to return for another season this summer. They'll need a team to agree to appear on the program first.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons have all declined offers to be featured on the show. You can cross the Jets off the list, too, because they aren't interested in an encore to their 2010 appearance on the show, according to the *New York Daily News*.

HBO hasn't approached the team for a return to the show, but the Daily News learned the Jets wouldn't accept an invitation if asked. This is consistent with what Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum said on "PFT Live" last month.

"There will be no sequel. I can confirm that on the record," Tannenbaum said.

The GM did leave the door open for a return to the show down the line.

"Let's just take it one year at a time," he said.

The Jets agreed to be chronicled during training camp last season, becoming media darlings in the process. The team, led by gregarious coach Rex Ryan, was a perfect fit for the program, which gives intimate access of the day-to-day operations of an NFL team as it prepares for a new season.

The Jets starred in the sixth season of the program, which debuted in 2001 and also has featured the Baltimore Ravens (2001), Dallas Cowboys (2002, 2008), Kansas City Chiefs (2007) and Cincinnati Bengals (2009).
