Hard Knocks will follow the Jets’ training camp.

They were one of the four teams eligible to appear on HBO’s Hard Knocks this year and once they traded for Aaron Rodgers, it was an easy call for the NFL to force the team to do the show.

They haven’t made the playoffs since 2010 but there’s real hype surrounding the team…

According to NFL news, the Jets will be the team that is forced to have cameras follow them around during training camp. Last month, head coach Robert Saleh made it clear that he wants nothing to do with Hard Knocks and asked the NFL to choose another team. Unfortunately for him, the NFL doesn’t give a sh*t what a coach with an 11-23 career wants.

Whether or not you’re a fan of Rodgers’ political beliefs, there’s no denying he’s good TV material. It’s easy to see him trying to avoid the cameras at all costs but they’ll be able to get some good footage. Every team that has to do Hard Knocks whines about it until it actually happens. I covered the Las Vegas Raiders extensively when they were featured on the show in 2019 and everybody said that it didn’t end up being much of a distraction. And that was the Antonio Brown year.

The Jets are going to make for great TV. While Saleh doesn’t want the cameras in his face, he’s a charismatic and fiery leader. He’ll be great on TV. The team also has some really exciting young talent. Star cornerback Sauce Gardner isn’t afraid to have the spotlight so he’ll likely be heavily featured.

The Jets are a very interesting team heading into the 2023 season. They haven’t made the playoffs since 2010 but there’s real hype surrounding the team for the first time in a long time. They have an elite defense and just added one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. This will be a fun season for those of us who like to bet on NFL games, especially for the Jets fans. There was no other team that should’ve been featured on Hard Knocks this year.

While there are plenty of interesting players or figures to be featured on the show, Rodgers will be the star if he wants to. NFL rumors say he is not happy about Hard Knocks, but he’s the face of football in New York now whether he wants to be or not. His opinions in recent years have made him controversial but there’s no denying he’s one of the best throwers of the football ever. The execs at HBO have to be praying he says some wacky shit in front of the cameras so that it goes viral on social media. Regardless, this should be a really fun year for Hard Knocks.
