The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars are holding joint practices this week as they prepare for Thursday night’s preseason game. And with joint practices come fights, because teams just can’t play nice with each other.
And that’s exactly what happened today, in a team brawl captured by Fox 13’s Jeff Tewksbury.
I imagine the Hard Knocks camera folks were glad to capture this moment, too. I’m sure we’ll see it on next week’s episode, probably with the phrase “tempers flare”.
Here’s the necessary caveat: these fights don’t really mean anything. They’re minor scrum with no real damage inflicted, and they die down quickly. They happen to every team, and they seem to be pretty common in joint practices in particular.
So yeah: nothing to worry about. Still fun to watch. And we’ll see it on Hard Knocks, probably.
