NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the Saints are bracing for a possible appearance on Hard Knocks in 2016.

Hard Knocks is a show on HBO that documents every day of training camp for one team. Knocks' is allowed to go behind the scenes in team meetings, and has cameras positioned all over the playing fields.

One major sticking point for the show, could be Sean Payton's reluctance to let cameras in his office while he cuts players. At his end of the year presser, he told the local media he wouldn't participate in such a private matter.

The Saints are one of seven teams in the NFL that could be forced into doing the show. To be selected for the show, a team must have missed the postseason for the past two years, have a veteran head coach and have not appeared on the show for the past decade.

Along with the Saints, the Bears, Bills, Chargers, Jaguars, Raiders, and Rams are eligible for the show.
