The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won't be bothered by rained-out practices for much longer. Co-chairman Bryan Glazer told the media today that the indoor facility will happen, although it's a work in progress, according to Greg Auman. Rick Stroud notes that the Glazers want the indoor facility in place by 2016.
The Bucs had yesterday's practice delayed and then removed to USF's facilities due to persistent rain and lightning, while the Bucs saw one training camp practice cancelled for the same reason last year. Over the years, delayed or cancelled practices have been fairly uncommon but still tend to happen a couple of times each year. An indoor facility would allow the Bucs to practice regardless of the circumstances, and would eliminate the need for them to move to Tropicana Field to train in a more controlled environment.
Obviously, having another place to practice can only be a positive. Here's to hoping this gets done a little more quickly than the renovations to Raymond James Stadium.
