Jets may be in mix for HBO's "Hard Knocks"
Monday, April 2, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) -- Fasten your seat belts, coach Rex Ryan and the New York Jets might just be ready for a sequel on HBO's "Hard Knocks."
Jets owner Woody Johnson says he's heard talk that HBO is interested in signing up the team for its training-camp documentary show. He's not ruling it out.
Johnson says Monday the team has not received a "formal invitation," but "when we do, we will take a look at it."
There's no word yet from HBO.
Speculation began after the Jets acquired Tim Tebow in a trade with the Broncos.
Asked if there have been informal discussions with HBO, Johnson says, "yeah" but "it's a formal invitation that we can respond to, not an informal (one)."
Johnson says the team's previous run on the show brought "tremendous value."
