Jeff Fisher thinks it is highly unlikely Hard Knocks will be in St. Louis

The HBO hit show Hard Knocks is getting close to making a decision on which team they are going to choose for the next series. There are a number of teams that are eligible and one team that has been mentioned is the St. Louis Rams. The Rams have a lot of interest at this time with the arrival of Michael Sam to camp. Everyone wants to put their eyes toward Sam and the things that are happening in St. Louis. Head Coach Jeff Fisher thinks that it is unlikely that the Rams will be the team to be placed on the show though.

“I think it’s unlikely,” Jeff Fisher told the Post-Dispatch on Monday. “We are eligible, but I think it’s highly unlikely they’d ask us to do it. I think this organization has a right to go through training camp with some normalcy.”

There is already going to be a lot of attention in St. Louis because of Sam. Fisher does have a point. The NFL doesn’t need to put all it’s attention toward Sam and the Rams. Another team might get some of the distractions of HBO Hard Knocks in their camp.
