The Atlanta Falcons thought over HBO’s offer to be the team featured on the show “Hard Knocks” and have declined the offer, according to ESPN.

There were extensive discussions between the organization and HBO but the team decided they wanted to simply focus on the football field, according to ESPN. HBO could now consider the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars to feature this season, but according to ESPN, the network is also looking at the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. HBO has already featured the Jets (in 2010), and owner Woody Johnson said the exposure was “of tremendous value” to the franchise, according to ESPN.
