The Atlanta Falcons will be featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks" training camp documentary, the team announced Thursday.

"We are excited about the opportunity to give our fans a behind the scenes look at what it takes to prepare an NFL team for the rigors of a 16-game regular season and beyond," Falcons owner and Chairman Arthur M. Blank said in a statement. "This marks the first time that our franchise will be featured on 'Hard Knocks' and we look forward to showcasing our great players and coaches to football fans all across America."

Falcons head coach Mike Smith generally shields his players and prefers to avoid distractions, but he's gotten onboard with the long-running documentary.

"We are looking forward to connecting with our fans across the country as the program chronicles our 2014 training camp," Smith said in the statement. "The series will give fans a behind the scenes look at the competition between players as we build our roster and prepare for the season. We are looking forward to the start of camp in late July."



The Falcons are coming off a 4-12 season.

"Hard Knocks" will feature quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Steven Jackson, and wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones, who will be returning from season-ending foot surgery. Another interesting storyline will be sixth-overall pick Jake Matthews, who is set to begin his career as the team's starting right tackle.

"Hard Knocks" with the Falcons is scheduled to debut Aug. 5. The first season followed the Baltimore Ravens in 2001, and the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, and Dallas Cowboys are among the other teams who have participated.
