Titans one of 8 teams eligible to be on Hard Knocks

I doubt anyone wants to see that.

NFL: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans have never been on Hard Knocks. Probably because most people around the country don’t really care about the Titans. That is going to start to change over the next couple of years as they become a perennial playoff contender.

Is that enough to get them on Hard Knocks in 2017? Time will tell on that, but for now we do know they are one of 8 teams eligible to be on the HBO program this year. Back in 2013 the NFL introduced these rules to exclude teams from being on Hard Knocks:

1) They have a first-year head coach in place; 2) They have a playoff berth in the past two seasons; 3) They have appeared on Hard Knocks in the past 10 years.

That leaves us with the Bears, Buccaneers, Browns, Colts, Eagles, Ravens, Saints and your Tennessee Titans as potential teams.

My guess is that the NFL will go somewhere else because the Titans really aren’t that interesting of a team from a personality standpoint, but there is a 1 in 8 chance that it could be them!
