Bucs Return In 14 Days

Every detail is critical to Dirk Koetter, and that could explain why the Bucs officially report back to work April 11, when they could have returned next Monday and taken advantage of an earlier offseason start afforded to teams with new head coaches.

The Bucs the return date official today.

The Broncos, under new head coach Gary Kubiak, also started a week later than allowed last year.

A big advantage, and likely the case here, is more consistent time for the entire team to spend together, including new draft picks arriving at the end of April. Starting a week later means more steady time with everyone in the building, versus more time for veterans up front and then a mandated week off in the middle of OTAs.

Again, the Broncos did this last year while most new head coaches passed.

Joe is a little bummed to wait another week (the Twitter countdown will have to be adjusted) but surely this is not big deal, and it might be a great thing.

    Licht: koetter what’s your plan for 2016?

    Koetter: I’m gonna do the exact opposite of what Lovie did and see where that gets us!

    Licht jumps in the pool.

    Meanwhile, Love Master is still trying to figure out who fits his scheme at Illinois and doing research on Jenkins and verifying if he has some eligibility left to play college football. Love Master needs a CB prolific enough to stop a slant.
