Bucs-Fins May Hold Practices

March 24th, 2019

Bucs coach Bruce Arians

UPDATED 6:51 p.m. – The Bucs’ tradition of having joint practices in preseason (which were beneath inept Lovie Smith) with another NFL team likely will continue with Bucco Bruce Arians.

Per Greg Auman of The Athletic by way of DolphinsWire.com, Arians said that the Bucs are planning on having joint practices in Tampa with the Dolphins this summer to coincide with their preseason game.

These joint practices have provided drama in past years.

Back during the administration of former Bucs commander Greg Schiano at New England, then-Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn had the gall to bullrush a Pats opponent and sack Tom Brady who suffered a mild knee injury.

Of course, all of New England gasped as one and went into panic mode. Clayborn quickly became the most hated person in Boston since King George III.

Two years ago the Bucs practiced against the Jags in Jacksonville and the whole time the Bucs mocked the Jags for having such a lousy team and how they were such pushovers.

The Jags went on to the AFC title game and the Bucs lost 11 games.

Perhaps Joe’s favorite was Jameis unloading on Austin Seferian-Jackwagon at a practice in Jacksonville back in 2016. That was a fun one. ASJ was cut a few weeks later.

    Jameis vs Fitz! lol

    Joint practices don’t seem to make much difference one way or the other for the Bucs. We still end up with 11 losses each year.

    With Gronkowski retired wonder if we could trade them cam brate for a 3rd and trade that to the jets for darron lee? Darron Lee was suspended for drugs, and was suspended by the team for other shenanigans. He’s a bust. Stop it. –Joe

    That last sentence is hilarious and depressing!

  5. Loyaltotheend Says:

    I’d rather see them practice against other players rather than a soft Bucs d or a bad Bucs o line

  6. BigMacAttack Says:

    Why hasn’t Jason Lice restructured GMC’s contract along with a couple others? Mathematics obviously isn’t his strong suit

  7. BigMacAttack Says:

    Will the players go on strike next year and opt for no practices at all, 75% of all revenue, health care and full salaries for life?

  8. Bird Says:


    Was thinking same thing with Brate and gronkowski retiring. Only
    Concern is Howard has not been healthy an entire year.
    Funny you got ripped for Darren lee comments. I read an article that Bucs Interested . Just FYI John – it’s cool for some people to pull shannanigans and get suspended and still be godly (put in 2 QB names here ________) Others not so much.

    Hypocrisy at its finest here.

    Think I remember Bruce saying he don’t like to scrimmage with teams he don’t know cause he don’t like the fighting that happens.

    But who is the HC in Miami?

  10. JimmyJack Says:

    Big Mac. McCoy is not a good player to restructure. If you do that you have to guarantee him multiple years. The Bucs could be planning on upgrading his position soon.

    If they are going to restructure it will be with a player they have long-term plans for. Like Mike Evans.

    Trade Brate to New england for 2nd and 4th round pick…it will clear miney and give us room to snatch up a few more needs….free agency sucked so let’s make this move. It’s time for oj howard to take all tbe snaps and threaten the middle of tbe field.

  12. Buccaneerscotty Says:

    It’s not the first Darren Lee Rumor to the bucs for a 3rd round pick I’ve heard…..just saying. Always behind always last to know lol

  13. Buccaneerscotty Says:

    Can’t handle the truth!

  14. DooshLaRue Says:

    Astute observation Bird.
    Hope Joe doesn’t smack your pee pee!

  15. DooshLaRue Says:

    I guess shenanigans are worse than hassles?

    just wanted to comment on the stick carriers…listened to pawloskis latest podcast.. the stick carriers tucked their tail and ran about half way through the year! Im tired of hearing about this pathetic millennial group of sunshine fans.. all of us that have witnessed the ray perkins days, the dungy revival and the superbowl, dont need a bunch of 20 year olds to motivate my fandom…GRRR get off my lawn..haha

  17. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Never trade with the Patriots, we always get screwed while they make Tim Wright a hall of famer.

  18. JimmyJack Says:

    Kyle. I hear ya. Had to put up a fence to keep em off my lawn I live two blocks from the Bufalo Wild Wing and last year I woke up to 2 stick carriers passed out and wasted next to my trash cans.

  19. Lunchbox Says:

    No way in Hell would we get a 2nd and a 4th for a backup TE, no matter what his previous numbers might be. The best we would get in a trade for Brate would be a 4th. That’s it.

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Getting rid of Hump removed the possibility of trading Brate, people. Brate now has the best hands on the team in the slot as a result. With Howard being injury prone, we can’t afford to lose him.

    And why would anyone want too?

    The objective of building through the draft is to acquire and develop good players. Trading them and starting over is NOT the goal.

    No…the time to trade a player is when you already have his position covered. We don’t. OJ simply is not proven enough yet.

  21. D1 Says:


    OJ has proven himself. He is the starter. They rarely hand out starting positions. Therefore he’s proven.

    Auclair is a good number 2. That and cheaper. Draft and develop starters is the idea, not reserve players. If Brate was making Auclair money then it’s a different discussion.
    Having depth at every position isn’t possible. So you gotta pick those spots. Oline Dline CB,
    depth just got tested and failed. But we’re deep at TE. Didn’t help.

    Jimmy, lmao!
