The NFL lockout is over, and life is returning to normal for the The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, beginning with training camp starting this Thursday and the first team practice on Friday. The next week will be hectic for the Buccaneers as free-agency begins and the team will have to spend some money to get themselves to the new salary floor.
Despite all the angst in the media over the lockout, it turns out that we won't even lose a pre-season game this year and the only thing really effected by the labor strife was the Canton, Ohio Hall of Fame Game.
Now that we know know games will be missed, here is a reminder of the upcoming Buccaneers preseason schedule:
- August 12th - Tampa Bay @ Kansas City, 8PM FOX
- August 18th - New England @ Tampa Bay, 7:30PM CBS
- August 27th - Miami @ Tampa Bay. 7:30PM CBS
- September 1st - Tampa Bay @ Washington. 7:30 PM TBA
