Jets' Rex Ryan Unsure Of Hard Knocks Sequel

Tuesday April 17th, 2012

The New York Jets were featured on HBO's NFL reality series Hard Knocks in 2010, but head coach Rex Ryan was noncommittal when discussing the possibility of his team returning to the spotlight.

"If we're asked, we'll talk about it, but quite honestly we've just had some casual conversations," Ryan told USA Today. "When we did Hard Knocks, I thought it was excellent -- I thought it was great exposure for our team ... at that time."

The Jets are certainly an interesting target, with both the turmoil between Santonio Holmes and Mark Sanchez to end the season, as well as the addition of Tim Tebow.

Still, Ryan implied that he wasn't even certain HBO was intent on returning to New York.

"No sense in getting into the what-ifs if we're not asked," Ryan told the paper. "If we're asked, then we'll sit down and have those conversations."
