On Monday, Pat Yasinskas of ESPN reported that the Buccaneers are the leading candidate to feature on this year's season of the HBO reality show "Hard Knocks." Apparently, while the Bucs have been involved in talks, no deal has been finalized.

Yesterday, a report suggested that HBO may also be considering the Dallas Cowboys, the Seattle Seahawks, the Miami Dolphins, the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos in addition to the Bucs. Of course, that is all assuming that there will be a CBA in place in time for a training camp to take place in July or August.

The Cowboys were featured on the show twice before, in 2002 and 2008. Jerry Jones would love the opportunity to get onto the national spotlight again and HBO might get a kick out of focusing on 'the other Ryan' after the Jets declined to pursue a second season, but would the notoriously tight-lipped Jason Garrett play along?

Let us know your thoughts on the Cowboys potentially appearing on "Hard Knocks" again. The Cowboys are always worth a story, there are characters everywhere and the haters alone will drive ratings up, let alone the Cowboys fans around the nation. But would the potential distraction be worth it?
