Jets' Aaron Rodgers reveals feelings toward 'Hard Knocks' feature


Recommended Posts

The New York Jets are expected to be featured on HBO’s "Hard Knocks" for the second time in the show’s history, but veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not too excited about it. 

During a practice round of the American Century Championship on Wednesday, Rodgers told KPIX that being selected for this season of "Hard Knocks" was something that was "forced" on the Jets.

"I understand the appeal with us," Rodgers admitted.

"Obviously there’s a lot of eyes on me, a lot of eyes on our team, a lot of expectations for our squad. So they forced it down our throats and we got to deal with it."

The four-time league MVP did admit there is one aspect of being on the show that he is looking forward to.

"One of the only things I like about Hard Knocks is the voice of God, who narrates it, Liev (Schreiber). I hope I get to meet him," Rodgers said with a smile.

The Jets were previously spotlighted during the 2010 season, when they reached the AFC Championship under head coach Rex Ryan. 

The NFL Network reported that the Jets were among four teams this year that were eligible without volunteering. The Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints and the Washington Commanders were also considered.

Head coach Robert Saleh said last month that it would not be his choice for the Jets to be featured on the show, despite the overwhelming interest following Rodgers' trade.

"I know there are several teams that would love for ‘Hard Knocks’ to be in their building. We’re just not one of them," he said at the time. 

The official announcement is expected to come sometime Friday as the Jets now focus on gearing up for training camp on July 19.
