Atlanta Falcons decline 'Hard Knocks'

By Pat Yasinskas

I just wanted to give you a heads-up to some breaking news.

A league source told me Saturday afternoon that the Atlanta Falcons have declined an opportunity to appear on HBO’s "Hard Knocks" this summer. You can read the news story here.

I’ll be back shortly with an analysis that explores why the Falcons decided not to appear on the show.
