For the fourth straight year, the Bucs will host training camp at One Buc Place in Tampa, this year featuring nine practices open to the public.
The team announced today that the first open session will be July 27 at 8:45 a.m., the same start time for each of the open practices.
Also continuing this year is the Bucs' habit of holding a free, Saturday-night workout at Raymond James Stadium. That has been scheduled for Aug. 4 at 6:30 p.m. and this year will feature an intrasquad scrimmage for the first time. The usual free parking, autographs and fireworks will continue, too.
No tickets will be required for practices, and gates will open at 7 a.m. Based on this timeline, we can project that Bucs players will report for camp on July 26 – just 31 days away. Training camp will allow fans their first chance to see new additions like receiver Vincent Jackson and first-round picks Mark Barron and Doug Martin.
"The anticipation and atmosphere of training camp is exciting for our fans and our team," co-chairman Bryan Glazer said. "We look forward to Bucs fans welcoming Coach (Greg) Schiano and our new players to the Tampa Bay area."
