Certain teams would be exempt from being forced to participate in the filming:

-- those with new coaches;

-- those that reached the playoffs in one of the previous two seasons;

-- those that appeared on "Hard Knocks" within the preceding 10 years.

So far, only seven of the 32 NFL teams have been on the series, which airs on HBO: Dallas Cowboys (twice), Cincinnati Bengals (twice), New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Kansas City Chiefs.
