Arians Announces Training Camp Joint Practice Partner


In an appearance on the Pewter Report Podcast Tuesday, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians revealed plans for joint practices with the Tennessee Titans ahead of there August 21st preseason game.

Arians was specifically asked about the quarterbacks on the roster. As well as how many snaps they will see in preseason Arians had this to say.

“So much of that will depend on how practice goes. If we get in and have good OTAs and a good mini-camp… As training camp’s going on, we’ve got a week set up with the Titans. ” Arians went on to say, “Hopefully everything goes (well) so we can do that and we’ll just judge where everybody is at (and decide) how much they play in the preseason.”

With the pandemic still ongoing things are not 100 percent certain. The league is moving in a direction where it looks like things will be getting back to business as usual.

The Titans are well coached by Mike Vrabel. They will present a good test with one of the best running backs in the league. It remains to be seen how teams will operate with the lack of a fourth preseason game. Typically the third game was a “dress rehearsal” that saw the starting units play significantly more snaps. More snaps than other preseason games. The Titans game will be the second preseason game for Arians and the Buccaneers and they could use that game, especially as their toughest preseason opponent, as the game to get starters extra reps. Either way the joint practices will be important for the teams development.
