Dolphins Accept HBO ‘Hard Knocks’ Invite

After a number of teams declined offers to appear on the show, the Miami Dolphins have agreed to be the featured team in HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin confirmed the news at a Tuesday morning media briefing.

Philbin characterized the move as a “football decision” and said the appearance on “Hard Knocks” will help the team “show a new identity.” The Dolphins could use some positive exposure after a rough offseason in which Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn opted not to play in Miami despite the Dolphins overtures.

At least a handful of teams declined HBO’s overtures to be featured on the show, including theRedskinsBroncos and Seahawks. Several more teams indicated they were unlikely to participate in the show if asked.

“Hard Knocks” is a series produced by HBO in which cameras follow a team throughout training camp. It’s a reality show of sorts showing what a team goes through during training camp. TheJets, the last team to be featured in “Hard Knocks,” were a popular choice in 2010. “Hard Knocks” was not produced in 2011.
