FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- The Bengals are coming to the Falcons' training camp. HBO's Hard Knocks cameras will be waiting.
Cincinnati is the star of this year's documentary series. The Bengals will share Atlanta's training camp facility on Monday and Tuesday before the teams meet in their preseason opener on Thursday night.
Atlanta often holds combined practices with other teams in camp. Having the HBO crew on site adds a new twist to two-a-day doldrums. The Falcons turned down an offer to star in the series last year.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis says he was careful to talk "quite a bit" with Falcons coach Mike Smith about the HBO arrangement.
HBO executive producer Ross Ketover says he also made sure there will be no surprises for Smith and the Falcons.
