Buccaneers favorite for HBO's "Hard Knocks" series

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be featured for the show's twelfth season it was announced on Wednesday.

"He looks great. Right now, he looks as good as I've seen him since I've been here from a physical standpoint", said general manager Jason Licht, still pondering taking a back high in next week's NFL Draft.

"I just think that's an unnecessary distraction for us", Mularkey told The Midday 180 on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville.

Although many fear a "Hard Knocks" curse, believing the show will take away from the team's focus on football, head coach Dirk Koetter has no worries about the show ruining their season. It'll be a big part of the Bucs' training camp and preseason for five weeks, and should help elevate the team's brand nationally, as well as that of young stars like Jameis Winston and Mike Evans. They have been chosen for Hard Knocks.

"We've still got a season to prepare for, whether there's a camera watching or not", he added.

For those out of the cable loop, Hard Knocks has been around since 2001, and is produced by HBO and National Football League films. There hasn't been much of a correlation with team's successes and failures after being on Hard Knocks over the summer. I think it would be, the fans would get an inside look at how our team really is.

Tampa Bay, which hasn't made the playoffs since 2007, finished 9-7 a year ago in its first season under Koetter. "So we'll probably go with the "no faking it" rule". The 2016 edition, chronicling the return of the Los Angeles Rams to southern California, has been nominated for four Sports Emmy® Awards for production excellence.

"I've watched it", McCoy said. Hopefully, this devolves into a contest of wills, whereby both player and coach refuse to ever actually leave the premises.

Koetter jokingly said he became pretty good at staying out of the line of the cameras during the 2014 Hard Knocks series in Atlanta.
