Buffalo Bills turned down HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’
The Buffalo Bills might have took all the excitement of a new head coach, big splash in free agency right into HBO’s hit series “Hard Knocks” this summer. But the Bills passed.
The Buffalo News reported that the Bills were offered the show but turned it down. Rex Ryan was featured on the show as coach of the New York Jets in 2010. The season was considered one of the show’s most successful due to Ryan’s entertaining coaching style. The show won its second straight Sports Emmy Award and the Jets were offered the show again in 2011 but turned it down.
The frontrunner for “Hard Knocks” is rumored to be the Cleveland Browns.
