NY Jets To Star In HBO Hard Knocks Series
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Get ready for Rex: Unplugged.
The chatty New York Jets and their brash coach, Rex Ryan, will be featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” training camp series this summer. The team announced Thursday that it was chosen by the cable channel and NFL Films for the five-episode documentary.
“We’re going to let the fans in on something that they’ve never seen up close and personal,” owner Woody Johnson said. “This is going to be kind of the king’s new clothes. I think you can argue that there’s no other team in the league right now that’s kind of more interesting than the New York Jets.”
The Jets certainly seem perfect subjects, starting with the loquacious and charismatic Ryan, a Baltimore assistant during the show’s first season in 2001, and trash-talking linebacker Bart Scott. GQ quarterback Mark Sanchez, All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis and newly signed LaDainian Tomlinson are also sure to get plenty of camera time.
