The New York Giants
will be featured on the HBO series “Hard Knocks” with a slight twist.

While Hard Knocks typically takes place during training camp, HBO has experimented with in-season content as well. Now, they’ve moved to year-round coverage.

The Giants will be featured on a Hard Knocks series during the offseason for the first time. The filming started immediately after the regular season ended going well into July.

While the Giants will have a say in what HBO can and can’t make public, this should expose information on some big storylines throughout the offseason.

New York Giants offseason on Hard Knocks

Wink Martindale drama

The feud between Giants head coach
Brian Daboll and the team’s former defensive coordinator was well-covered at the beginning of the offseason. While it’s difficult to know what’s true from the reports, hopefully we get to see an inside look at what went down before the Giants eventually parted ways with Martindale.
