The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have done joint practices before, and for the most part, it has helped. With the young talent and veteran presence on this roster, there could be a breakthrough coming, finally.
The joint practices could help the Buccaneers grow as a team, as well as learn from other teams work habits. Going against your own team helps you get better, but going against another team, in practice, gives you a different measuring stick.
You get a much better gauge of the talent on your roster, from the QB to the running backs and receivers, as well as figure out exactly how cohesive the d-line is with one another, and grading the LB, CB and safety play. There really isn’t a position that can’t be better evaluated with joint practices.
Considering how the season went for the Bucs last season, the team needs a measuring stick against other talent in the NFL before the games really begin to matter.
