NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he would like to see the NFL take a look at rotating teams in the HBO show "Hard Knocks."

The Cincinnati Bengals were chosen for the spotlight for the second time in four years. This year's series debuts on August 6. The Miami Dolphins were profiled last year.

"We're talking about some kind of formal rotation where teams participate in the show on a more regular basis," Goodell said last week via Bengals.com. "Not necessarily more frequently, but on a regular basis so that it is a shared obligation and it would give more teams an opportunity to have this."

The  Houston Texans, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons all reportedly turned down an offer to appear on the show. The Seattle Seahawks also said they were approached but turned it down.

"The show has been popular with our fans because it gives them an inside look at how a team operates. The Bengals have been great about inviting HBO and NFL Films in to be able to see what's going on," Goodell said. "And understand how a team is put together. That inside access is what the show is all about. The storylines always develop in a positive way because they get access. They're able to understand the human emotions that are going on and the decisions that are made."
