One thing to know: Bengals reappear on ‘Hard Knocks’

Reprising their role as reality TV stars, the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to star on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” for the second time since 2009. Mike Florio finds it odd a team with playoff aspirations would let cameras into the locker room, and doesn’t believe the gains outweigh the distraction.

While some of the coaching staff and only 13 players are holdovers from 2009, did their previous experience on the show make the decision any easier?
