Let’s add this up. Former superstar left guard Logan Mankins reported to the Bucs revitalized in April with “six-pack abs” (perhaps he gave up grilled meat?) and was called the “father of the locker room” by Tampa Bay management last week.
The Bucs have just announced that today’s practice at 2:30 p.m., which was open to the public, is now closed to the public, so the Bucs mobile app alert that Joe received stated.
The practice was closed because of the downpours in Tampa that have left roads dicey and unsafe for traveling.
The next Bucs practice open to the public is Tuesday at 9 a.m.
