The NFL released it's full regular season schedule last week, and the opponent matchups for the preseason the week before. But they hadn't yet released the exact dates and times for the preseason. That's changed now: Greg Auman just noted the dates and times on Twitter, and they can be found elsewhere as well -- like on ESPN. The Bucs have since confirmed these dates and times as well. It seems that the NFL set those dates and times without officially announcing them.
The Bucs play the Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and Washington in the preseason. It's the first time in fifteen years they're not facing the Miami Dolphins. They'll play the first two games on the road to give the stadium crew some extra time to install the new videoboards. The third game will be nationally televised on CBS.
