HBO's 'Hard Knocks' will be taking a season off, Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported Saturday evening.

The reality show follows an NFL team during training camp and the preseason. It began in 2001 with the Ravens and has had a total of six seasons after not being on air from 2003 to 2006.

Because of the lockout, training camp will be different this season, as it is expected to overlap with a chaotic period of free agency and signing of undrafted free agents.

In May, the Buccaneers had declined a request to be this year's team featured on the show. Last year's edition of 'Hard Knocks' featured the Jets.

Reports indicate that the NFLPA will vote to approve the litigatin settlement on Monday that would end the lockout and start the league year later in the week.

The way we see it

Having documentary cameras in team facilities for all the activity would likely add pressure to staffs that wil alreadyl have their work cut out for them when the doors finally open.
