Schedule to be released Tuesday
Because we know you can't wait, just wanted to share that the Bucs are telling us the regular-season schedule will be released on Tuesday.
We'll pass it along as soon as we get our hands on it.
I'll be curious to see whether the Bucs have any primetime, national TV appearances other than the NFL Network game against the Patriots on tap for the preseason. Games against the Chargers, Cowboys or Seahawks would appear to be the most attractive to the networks. A home game against the Vikings might be appealing, too, given Adrian Peterson's popularity.
The Bucs didn't have a national television game last season (with the exception of the wild card game) but are expected to get serious consideration this season after winning the division crown in 2007.
