Buccaneers cancel third day of minicamp practice for team outing

USA TODAY Sports

With a team culture established, Greg Schiano may be relaxing a little.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cancelled the third day of their three-day minicamp in favor of a team outing -- some teambuilding fun and exercise, presumably. Greg Schiano appears to be mellowing, indeed.

Despite limited time to work with players this offseason, the Buccaneers apparently feel that more hard work won't be very useful. They had largely finished installing their playbooks by Tuesday, so perhaps there wasn't much more work. Schiano also expressed some concerns about overworking players on the first day of minicamp, as the Bucs have now spent four consecutive weeks on offseason workouts and the players may need some rest.

Last season, the Buccaneers worked their players very hard trying to establish a new culture, leading to the departure of several of Raheem Morris' starters. Schiano has said that he will relax a few rules now that that culture has largely been established -- perhaps we're seeing a little evidence of that change.
