Eagles could be picked for HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

HBO's Hard Knocks enters its 13th season this year, and so far the Eagles have avoided appearing on the popular but intrusive documentary series that follows a single NFL team through training camp and the preseason.

That could change this year.

The Eagles are one of eight teams that the NFL could force to participate in the HBO series, according to a resolution passed by NFL owners in 2013.

There are three exemptions that allow teams to avoid mandatory inclusion in the show: 1) They have appeared in the playoffs at least once in the past two seasons; 2) They have a first-year head coach; 3) They have been featured on Hard Knocks at least once in the past 10 years.

Of the teams eligible, only the Bears play in a larger media market than the Eagles.

An announcement about which team will be featured is expected sometime in the spring.
