Buccaneers Plan Joint Practices With Dolphins And Jaguars

March 26th, 2024

Todd Bowles loves to practice against other teams during training camp and that tradition will continue this year.

Pending league approval, the Bucs will head to Jacksonville in August for two practices with the Jaguars before a Bucs-Jags preseason game there. Tampa Bay also plans to host the Dolphins for multiple sessions at One Buc Palace prior to their preseason game in Tampa.

Last year, the Bucs traveled to the Jets for two days of preseason practices but the Jets cancelled the second day and the Bucs were left scrambling for a place to practice themselves. They ended up shuffling to the Giants’ facility and had little more than a short walk-through on a wet field. Tampa Bay didn’t schedule joint practices with any other teams.

Potential good news for the common Bucs fan: If the Bucs don’t open training camp practices in Tampa for those not part of a special interest group or in possession of season tickets, the Jaguars hold open practices and their facility has pretty good sightlines.

    I love joint practices, I remember the Dolphins were here Jameis’ last season and I was watching Goal Line, Jordan Whitehead lit Keyan Drake up! The hit was so loud that the players on the other practice field whipped their heads around like they heard an explosion, it was awesome!!

    Great opportunity for our defense to practice against the Dolphins #1 offense, a real challenge and an opportunity to evaluate our defensive rookies.

    Nice! Keep it all close to home.

    I had forgotten the Jets pulled that BS on us last year….

    Joint practices are a great way to get solid work and evaluation done in a more controlled and safer environment. (Compared to preseason games)

    Opposing Coaches can agree on certain plays and looks that allow for better eval of certain players in specific situations as well….
