Bucs-Jaguars joint practices filled up

2 practices filled up

For Bucs fans planning on an impromptu trip up to Jacksonville for the team's joint practices against the Jaguars on Wednesday and Thursday, hold on a minute.

The Jaguars announced Monday that the two practices are already at capacity, with free tickets distributed to registered fans, and no room for walk-up attendance at either practice.

The practices are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. both days at the practice fields adjacent to Everbank Field. The Jaguars say tickets are still available for Saturday night's game with the Bucs — on the secondary market, they're selling for as little as $16 on and

The Bucs have only one more home practice open to the general public — an Aug. 24 joint practice with the Browns next week, which is still a normal open practice without any registration or free tickets.

Going fast

The Bucs sent an e-mail to fans stating that their Oct. 2 home game against the Broncos has joined a Nov. 13 home game against the Bears as being sold out for individual single-game tickets, so admission is only available through season tickets, five-game miniplans and the secondary market.

Familiar faces

Just as four members of the Bucs coaching staff used to work in Jacksonville, there are several Bucs ties on the Jaguars' staff. Head coach Gus Bradley was the Bucs' linebackers coach from 2006-08, offensive coordinator Greg Olson was a Bucs assistant from 2008-11, quarterbacks coach Nathaniel Hackett got his start as an offensive quality control coach with the Bucs from 2006-07, and tight ends coach Ron Middleton was a Bucs assistant from 2004-06. The most recognizable: Longtime Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is a Jaguars defensive assistant.
