Bengals’ James Harrison Not a Fan of “Hard Knocks”
(NEW YORK) -- The HBO reality series Hard Knocks gives fans a chance to see a the side of an NFL team during training camp that traditionally is left unseen. This season the show is following the Cincinnati Bengals and linebacker James Harrison is not a fan.
"I don't feel they deserve to be here," Harrison told reporters. "They did nothing to be here other than they want to be here. They didn't put no blood, sweat and tears into [any] of this."
Bengals owner Mike Brown thought that this would be a good chance to give fans of not just the Bengas, but the entire NFL, to get an in-depth look at the team and help their image.
Harrison disagrees, adding, "No on deserves to see this, to come inside unless you're part of this."
This is not the first time the show has invaded Bengals training camp. Back in 2009, the series also followed around the Bengals, but Harrison was not on the team. Harrison signed with the Bengals during the offseason after spending his first nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In seasons past, the show has also followed the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins.
