Hey... if the NFL says so, it must be true.... NFL denies Hard Knocks field has been cut to three teams Posted by Mike Florio on April 29, 2014, 1:39 PM EDT Getty Images Last week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the next subject of the Hard Knocks series will be determined soon. This week, the NFL has denied that the field has been cut to three teams. Per multiple reports, league spokesman Greg Aiello says that a report that the Hard Knocks field has been narrowed to the Giants, Bears, and Steelers isn’t accurate. That’s a shame, because any of those teams would be great choices. Usually, the Hard Knocks team doesn’t have a national following but hopes to build one. The Giants, Bears, and Steelers already have a national following. Under standards the NFL passed last year, the Bills, Bears, Cardinals, Giants, Jaguars, Raiders, Rams, and Steelers can be compelled to do the show.
