Bears won't be featured on HBO's Hard Knocks in 2017

The Buccaneers are expected to be HBO's Hard Knocks team for the 2017 season. He recorded a career-high 96 receptions for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2016 while earning his first Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections.

"The fans would get an inside look at how our team really is", Jason Licht said in comments distributed by the team on Monday. "We're excited to have him, excited to see how he does out here in OTAs".

For the first time in the team's history, game days will feature seven-and-a-half-hours of Buccaneers programming completely on the FM dial, including pre- and post-game shows bookending the action on the field. Martin will be suspended the first three weeks of the regular season but is allowed to participate in training camp and the preseason.

"Yeah, you could say that, " Licht said when asked if the final days leading up to the draft could impact the team's decision regarding Martin's future. "We've still got a season to prepare for, whether there's a camera watching or not".

Arrest made in Lincoln Elementary gun incident, not connected to Jakubowski investigation
"It has been a little frustrating that we have not found this individual yet, and we'd sure like to see this situation resolved". Police have said they want to find Jakubowski over fears he may be planning an attack of some kind.

The Buccaneers went 9-7 last season, which was their best showing since 2010. "If we get picked, it is what it is, let's be professionals and go to work".

We now know that the camera crews will not be coming to Halas Hall, as multiple media outlets are reporting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will announce on Wednesday that they will be the subject of the show this summer.

"Sure, it can", Licht said.

Winston is excited by the prospect of appearing on the show, but notes that their job is "to play football" and that NFL Films and HBO can "add all of the glitz and glamour". We will see if that's the case.
