TV sources said the team is no longer in consideration, according to the New York Daily News, though the network would not confirm the decision.
We still have time to decide, an HBO spokesman told the Daily News, "And we, and our NFL Films partners, haven’t made any decisions yet."
The Jets, who were featured on the NFL reality series two seasons ago, were sought because of the drama that has filled their locker room in previous seasons -- and the expected storylines for the upcoming season.
With quarterback Mark Sanchez expected to receive pressure from newly acquired Tim Tebow, the Jets were thought to draw big ratings for the series. However, coach Rex Ryan reportedly fought against the returning the reality series because of repairs needed in the locker-room morale.
