Raiders Selected For ‘Hard Knocks’ as Giants Passed Over

The New York Giants won’t be on HBO’s season of Hard Knocks this year, as the Oakland Raiders have been selected by the NFL.

NFL Update on Twitter

Here we go! The #Raiders have been selected to be the featured team on HBO’s Hard Knocks. Gruden, Mayock, Carr, AB, Burfict, Incognito. Can’t wait. ????

Teams can avoid mandatory inclusion on “Hard Knocks” if they fall under any of three exemptions: 1) They have a first-year head coach. 2) They have a playoff berth in the past two seasons. 3) They have appeared on “Hard Knocks” in the past 10 years.

The Giants were eligible but weren’t selected. Is anyone upset about not seeing the Giants on the program?
