'Hard Knocks' wants the Jets, but the feeling isn't mutual: sources

'Hard Knocks' wants the Jets, but the feeling isn't mutual: sources

The Jets might be a perfect fit for the next installment of a€œHard Knocksa€ given all their colorful personalities, but dona€™t set your DVRs expecting to find them this summer.

Although Ia€™m told that people putting together the annual docuseries have interest in having the Jets on air, the feeling isna€™t mutual. People on One Jets Drive have privately expressed their desire to me to steer clear of the show for myriad reasons.

Translation: Dona€™t expect the Jets to volunteer for Hard Knocks.

The Jets have not had any formal discussions with NFL Films, which chronicles one teama€™s journey through training camp, about the topic. NFL Films kicks off those types of conversations with potential teams in March, according to sources.

The NFL Films brain trust typically doesna€™t ask teams with new head coaches to be on the show, but the Jetsa€™ motley crew has created a curiosity internally among some of those folks.

The policy, however, is clear: The Jets are exempt from appearing on the show due to guidelines set forth by owners six years ago.

League rules explicitly state that teams cannot be compelled to appear on Hard Knocks if they fall into one of three categories:

1) They have a first-year head coach.

2) They have made the playoffs in the past two seasons.

3) They have appeared on the show in the past 10 years.
