The Tampa Bay Buccaneers expect to have some joint practices with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns in training camp this year, head coach Dirk Koetter said today.
The Bucs play the Jaguars in week two of preseason in Jacksonville, and they face the Browns in week three of the preseason in Tampa, so presumably they'll be holding their practices those days, too.
The Bucs haven't held joint practices the past two years, though Greg Schiano was rather infatuated with them, as long as the other team had Bill Belichick as the head coach. Joint practices can help a team prepare a little better than just regular, every-day practice, and they break up the monotony a little bit.
Besides, they're fun to watch. With a bit of luck, they'll be open to fans as well.
