COME & KNOCK ON MY DOOR? In New Orleans, Mike Triplett reported the Saints yesterday "quickly refuted an ESPN report that they are one of a handful of teams being considered" for this year's edition of "Hard Knocks." Saints VP/Communications Greg Bensel said that the team "gets approached every year but that they 'politely decline' every time" (NOLA.com, 3/21). ESPN.com's Bill Williamson wrote it "would be intriguing to see the HBO cameras work the Raiders’ training camp in Napa, Calif." With Owner Al Davis, "energetic coach Hue Jackson and a young, interesting roster, the Raiders would be compelling television." But the team is "notoriously private, and the training-camp setting in Napa is very controlled" (ESPN.com, 3/21).
